Hi everyone! I’m Clara Kensie, and I’m thrilled to be back as part of the Adventures in YA Publishing team with a new weekly post. What’s my topic going to be? YOU!
Pretty much the only thing writers love as much as writing is talking about writing. So each week, I’ll post a question for you to answer. The questions will cover all topics important to writers: craft, career, writers’ life, reading and books. Together we’ll become better writers by sharing tips and discussing our habits and practices.
Question of the Week
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Plotter: A writer who plans their plot, characters, and settings before writing the story.
Pantser: A writer who writes “by the seat of their pants.” No plotting, no planning ahead.
My answer: I’m 80% plotter and 20% pantser. I guess that makes me a plantser.
