There’s a lot of talk in writing circles about whether we ‘plot’ or ‘pants’ our novels. Pantsing, otherwise known as SOTP, refers to writing by the ‘seat of the pants,’ meaning the writer does not plan the whole thing out in advance.
I used to think if I wasn’t one, I was the other. I knew I wasn’t a ‘pantser’ so that apparently meant I was a plotter. So then, why did plotting seem so hard?
