The fabulous Lynn Viehl, Paperback Writer, each year does an awesome online blog conference for those of us not going to RWA (either because we don’t want to, can’t afford it, won’t fit our schedules, or whatever). Not only does she always write a series of fabulous and informative posts herself, but she links to other blogs around the net who are also participating. There are always great series on everything you can imagine and best of all there are giveaways! I’ve been lucky enough to win book giveaways the last couple of years, and it’s always a really huge thrill (I mean, come on, free books and other goodies? What’s not to love?).
In any event, I’ve decided to participate by offering a series myself on Going From Pantser to Plotter.
Planned posts (subject to change as I have not yet written them) include:
- Why The Pantser Fears Plotting
- My Problems With Pantsing
- Stuff I’ve Used In My Conversion
- Why Plot?
I’m also hitting up my bookshelves for some gently used books to give away. I know the big thing is to give away shiny new books, but despite being 3 years out of grad school, I am still on a broke grad student’s budget (as we are now paying to put my husband through school), so we work with what we have, right?
In any event, things kick off on Monday, July 13th.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already checked out my series on Character Interviews, you can find them here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
Looking forward to your blog post series! It’ll be nice to see how someone else does it (and pick up some tips!) since I’ve been making the transition from panster-to-plotter over the last 3 years myself. 🙂
I’m excited that you are doing this!
Just a reminder — if you can still swing LB&LI, send me your link info. 🙂
