The pantser versus plotter argument has been around for a long time. Should you plot everything out, right down to the nitty-gritty? Or should you write everything from the seat of your pants, just let the muse take over? Or should you use some hybrid approach? There is no one way to write. However, even if you are a true 100% pantser, do try to at least have a premise and a few key plot points worked out before you start writing. You don’t need to go into any fantastic detail, but those points could help you get unstuck when writer’s block sets in.
