Thanks to all of you who sent in your comments about my talk and how Storytelling for Pantsers is helping you with your writing.
From the pithy “It. was. AWESOME!” to the more detailed:
I thought your talk was really good. I had never even heard the term “Pantser” until then. Your talk was both encouraging and useful and you are a very engaging speaker. For months I’ve been stuck in a sort of outlining slough. Everyone was telling me I should have a book plan in place and when I tried it just didn’t work. I was just wasting a whole lot of time. I started doubting my story idea and my own ability to write it, it never occurred to me that I was actually working against my brain’s natural way of functioning. When I got home I dumped all the outlining and story plan guides I had been trying to follow and I just started writing, and I’ve been more productive in the past few days than I have been in months.
I had an AMAZING time (though, full confession: I crashed out on Andi’s couch for a LONG nap Sunday afternoon!)
I want to send a shout-out to two amazing stars of the weekend: Hannah and Andi. Without their kindness and support, none of this would have been possible.
The Conference was exciting, to be sure, and all the more so because it was the Advanced Release of Storytelling for Pantsers.
In case you haven’t heard: Storytelling for Pantsers takes a humorous, serious look at what the writing process looks like for non-outliners, and gives step-by-step strategies to work through the murky-murky mess.
The book sold really well, and writers came back to tell me what a difference the message made, and helped them in a way they’d never been helped before! Even more good news: I’ve also created THE STORYTELLING FOR PANTSERS WORKBOOK
The workbook gives you all the handouts to help you apply what you learn in the book to your actual novel.
If you bought a copy of both/either, would you leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or Barnes and Noble. I’d be ever so grateful.
I love writing with you and I always love to hear from you.
