I confess I am a total pantser. Plotting just won't work for me . I think that structure is actually intrinsic to the story telling process. It will happen naturally as the story evolves. I know others hold an opposite view, writing tutors are probably the worst for this.
Anyway I thought I would look up "famous pantsers" and see what company I was in, if any?
Pleasant surprise...
We writers are a funny bunch. I mean, do painters do this sort of thing?

I'm a sketcher! No, I'm top-down painter. Me, I just toss buckets of paint.

Or musicians? Sculptors? AFAIK, writers are the only ones so obsessed with this division between planning and diving headfirst.

Which reminds me of the wise saying. People can be divided into two groups: those who divide everyone into two groups, and those who don't.
