Robert FrostI have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering.

~ Robert Frost

Who knew – poet Robert Frost was a pantser (a.k.a. non-plotter), too?

I’m always interested to read about techniques of various authors: some are meticulous plotters, while others are unabashed pantsers. It never fails to surprise me who is which.

I like the idea of discovering through your writing. It has happened to me on several occasions where I thought I was writing one story, but when my characters began talking and acting on the page, it became an entirely different story.

What about you, writers? Are you plotters or pantsers? Do you enjoy discovering what other writers are? Do you equate writing with discovery?

Happy writing to all!
