With hunters after David and Emma’s ex stalking her is there any way this mating stands a chance?


I hear the question a lot. Are you a plotter or a pantser. For me, the question isn’t as easy as it seems. On the one hand, I’m a plotter. I kid you not, it’s all very colorful and well thought out before I put one word on the page. Without the plot, I get all tied up in knots and my writing gets stuck. There is nothing like the horror of staring at a blank page and having no idea what to type.

That doesn’t mean that my characters always go along with the plot though. I’ll be typing along quite nicely when the characters will suddenly insist upon a left turn into unplotted land. 

Oh, trust me I have tried forcing the story back on plot but it’s stilted and ugly. It never makes the cut. In the end, I have to put on my pantser pants and do my best. Usually, the characters swing me back in the general direction of the plot and my comfort zone.

Between the plot exit and reentry though there’s a roller-coaster of unplotted panic driven typing while I try to quiet the voices in my head enough that I can sleep at night. Characters can be very uncooperative with the whole sleep agenda if they aren’t getting their way.

Once I’m back on plot I can once again carry on typing without quite so much relentless prodding from the characters until the next time they decide to rip me off plot for a journey into their own imaginings.
