One of my favorite procrastination passtimes is reading quotes and collecting ones that strike a cord with me. someone on the Cerriwden Authors Blog asked How do you write? well my other half and probably better half is a panster. Her characters get their fingers on the keyboard and away they go! Me? Well I used to think I was a panster too, but now am realizing i need some direction. at least three scenes in advance. My characters like to know where they are going and at least a few turns in advance so that quick right turn isnt missed. I started reading the book The Writer's Book of Matches by the staff of Fresh Boiled Peanuts ( and came across a new favorite quote and way to describe my plotting panster ways...

"Writing is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way."~E.L. Doctorow
