My name is Anne and I am a Pantser!
Is it Different for Fiction vs. Non-Fiction Writers?
Fast-forward two years and we have a full, busy life but I still protect time every week to work on my next novel. The problem is, I can never remember where I left off (another symptom of menopause). I forget the name of that secondary character I introduced the last time I sat down to write (or even if I actually brought them into the picture yet). I kept having to go back and re-read what I wrote and take the first half hour at least, getting back into the story to figure out where I was on the plotline, which was all in my head except for the random notes I had arbitrarily written in a ‘dump’ file! *A side note: I do recommend keeping a dump file going - somewhere to park those wild ideas that come to you out of nowhere but don't have a place... yet!
