I am taking a class that utilizes the plot wheel.
I am a pantser and I thought it would be good for me to stretch my legs.

Where I am struggling is that I have this GREAT character and no plot for the wheel.
Well, that's not true, I do have a plot...I'm just trying to refine it.

I am feeling confined.
I am having issues.

I still think that this is a good thing and will continue to work through it.

I think that the problem lies in my constructs and how that overlays the instructors constructs.

Trying to do something that is opposite of what I usually do - is bizaro world - but good.
I'm struggling, but that's okay.


  1. A little planning is a good thing but not when it stresses you out.

  2. Yeah, I always feel constrained the end...bored. But only if I OVERplot. I think going into the nitty gritty detail when you're just plotting is a bad thing, but having a loose plan is definitely a benefit. I am still a pantser at heart though. ;)

  3. Just breathe, don't panic. Take it slow. Give yourself some time to adjust to doing something different. Best of luck

  4. I just finished half a year of studying structure, and now am needing to find my way back to my pants.
