You might be wondering what a pantser is. Despite autocorrects attempts, you read that right. A pantser is an author who sits down and writes a book, by the seat of their pants. No outline, no plan. I'm sure they have an idea of where they're going. But maybe they don't.
I can't tell you how many writers tell me they're pantsers and don't have a book to show for it. As a hybrid pantser/outliner myself I get where you're coming from. I really do. You want to just jump in on that scene you thought about as the idea came to you. You can totally take it from there! And some people can. Stephen King is the most famous pantser I know of. And obviously that works for him. BUT if you don't have a book or workable manuscript from your years of pantsing, you should consider other ways.
Are you a pantser? Do you know of any famous authors who are? Tell us in the comments!
