#PitchWars 2017 Wish list

Hello! If you’re looking for my #PitchWars 2017 wish list, please head on over to Allison Ziegler’s blog. We co-mentored this year as #TeamBadPrincess.

Thank you!

The In Between and Synopsis Writing

I am in the strange in between, when my WIP is with critters and I’m not interested in starting a new project. Instead of sitting around, twiddling my thumbs, I’m working on the lovely synopsis. I’m all about using free time wisely.

Incase any of you are in the same spot, I highly suggest checking out Lora Rivera’s checklist. Feel free to catch me on Twitter or send me an e-mail if you need a synopsis writing buddy!

Friday, I’ll have another audiobook review up for you all. Sorry I missed last week, but I was back home for Christmas :)

Judgy Juliana?

Gasp! I realized last night that I’ve been snidely looking down my nose a group of writers.

Pantsers.

I’m a natural plotter. I love plotting and knowing where my story is going.

The ironic thing is, it turns out I really enjoy pantsing. Another gasp! *sigh*

I’m in the midst of editing Guardians and don’t have the focus to plot out a whole new book. So instead, I’m completely winging it with my new WIP. And it’s been great! I’m discovering the characters as I write and am realizing I don’t have to agonize over plot, structure, and pre-fabricated ideas over what the WIP should be.

Simply amazing.

So I apologize all of you wonderful people who are pantsers. It seems I’ve learned a thing or two in the past week and have been completely proven wrong.

Two amazing writers have helped me realize the benefits of pantsing and you all should go check out their blogs: Misty and Kate. You guys are the best :)

Are you a pantser or plotter? Or do you find you enjoy doing a bit of both?

(Thanks everyone who’s stopped by for Deana’s blogfest! I’ve had a blast stopping by all your sites and can’t wait to get to know y’all better. :) )
