Confession, I’ve always thought pantsers were a rare minority. I know a lot of people relate to it and say they are, but unless you’ve finished a novel pantsing I never took it seriously. My philosophy is that most people aren’t really pantsers, they thrive on that in the beginning because the idea is fresh, shiny, and new but once the luster wears off it’s hard to finish something if you don’t know where its going.
Now, I feel like I can’t turn sideways without running into one. How many people are true pantsers? How many do you know? What are the pros to you as a pantser?
To clarify, I don’t think being a pantser is wrong or shameful or frowned upon. I don’t think they write worse books or anything. I just thought true pantsers were just rarer.
