So I thought since I have interviewed hundreds of authors over the years on this blog, that you would enjoy hearing me answer some of the questions I have posed to them over the years.
Each week I will answer one or two questions, if you want you can leave your own questions for me in the comments and I will try and answer them in a future blog post!

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you?
Funny enough I was just having a discussion about this a month ago with a fellow author.
I said long ago and far away (read 10 years ago) when I started writing my books, there was no time for me to plot things out, or make notes. Everything just tumbled out of me, but as I have aged (read gotten old) I have had to think things through and write down what I am thinking more and more to ensure I dont lose a piece of something somewhere. It is a horrible feeling to know you had a transition/scene/chapter sorted out and boom you cant for the life of you remember what it was but youre sure that it was absolutely perfect.
So to answer the question, I was a pantser when I started but I am leaning more and more towards being a plotter/jotter.
