Why I Don’t Plot…


Gif Credit to the owner, it was placed on Pinterest from decisivelychallenged.tumblr.com

I am in the process of drafting a new novel called Compliant. I will tell you all about it soon.

This book has been my enemy since I started. It hasn’t flowed as well as I’d like and it’s taken a lot of effort to make it to where it currently is.

Today’s goal was to finish it, at least the first draft. I found notes from a 2am ah-ha moment. And well the notes sucked. They went
Hits scott Shes pres
Army attack
(That’s right, no grammar or punctuation)

I get her hitting Scott. He’s a jerk. I get the Army attacking. But what in the actual hell is “Shes pres”?? I would love someone to tell me cos I really have no idea

As a result, I may have just jumped right over that little bit. Can’t be that important right?

Anyway, my book ended. That’s great. I’m finally there, 81,000 words and  I killed off more people than the producers of Game of Thrones and in a shorter time span. I’m still not sure if it’s due to the plot or my overtired grumpy mood. Either way. I decided that these GIF’s suit it fine.



Until I got to the end…

I killed off the wrong person. Now it’s do I change it or go with it and enjoy the ending. I had so many plans and well oops… Now I’m tired, have parts of my story missing, my coffee cups empty and I’m crying because of the death of a character I liked.

So there you have it, this is why I don’t plot…

Are you a plotter or a panster?
