This Week’s Prompt

Begin your story/poem/whatever you’re writing, with the words: “It was a normal day until…”

I’ll add a link to my response to the prompt in the comments some time during the week. I would love to see other writers get involved as well.

Are you a pantser or a planner? When you’re writing do you write by the seat of your pants, and let the story go where ever it wants to? Or do you plan out the plot and structure carefully and follow that?

My response to the discussion question: I’m normally a “pantser”. I start with an idea and just write from there. My major work in progress at the moment, though, has been carefully planned out. So I’m breaking the mould. For my short stories and poetry though, I’m still pretty much starting and letting the words go wherever they want.

I would love to find out what other writers have to say.

You can write your responses to the Prompt or the Discussion or both in the comments, or on your own website and post a link to the post in the comments. If you need a website, you can get a free WordPress site here. (If you use this referral link to set up a WordPress account, you and I will both receive WordPress credit.)
