Plotter or a pantser? Or...a plantser? (1 Viewer)

Tried being a pantser, but all that does for me is gets me a few thousand words into the story and then I fizzle out as I dont know where the story is going.

I am a plotter, I need to have an idea of where the story is going. within the chapters I do a bit of pantsing, within the guidelines for the chapter.

I would have to say that I'm a plantser- half way between plotter and pantser. I do have some semblance of a plot and where I want the stories to go- with some scenarios that must happen in them, however, I don't have it written down.

Half Pantser / half plotter = plantser

To know that there's a word for being a "yay i finished the blurb of a book but i dont know what will happen from there on so lets just wing it", I've never felt so validated. Always nice to be known as a plant, sir. ; )

A pantzer but I've usually got a rough idea of the characters and important scenes already planted firmly into my head.
