Writers all around the world have sharpened their pencils, pulled out their laptops or iPhones and are rapidly spilling their stories out. The 30 day, 50,000 word count rough draft novel challenge is upon us. And for the first time since 2014 I was not sure if I’d join in this year.
Lined up for the challenge are two types of writers. Plotters and Pantster. Plotters create a story line with graphs and outlines. A Pantster has the seed of an idea, sits down and literally writes by their seat of their pants as fast as they can. I’m a Pantster with Plotter tendencies when it’s time to revise/edit.
This year without the seed of an idea I turned to rewrites (which are allowed) and revision of old drafts. I’ve got four rough drafts in my arsenal yearning to be worked on. But no new ideas. Wish me luck.
