I think the title says it all. Sometimes I have no clue what I'm doing. Honestly, I make things up as I go. Especially in writing. Ninety percent of the time I really have no idea how my story is going to end. There have been times I don't even have villains. I have the characters meet and that's about it.
I am a panster through and through.
It makes life interesting. Should have recorded April 1st when my husband, parents, little sister and two best friends (plus the one's boyfriend) went down to the courthouse to get married. It was chaos. But oh so much fun! I have friends ask me what are my plans for the week. I say, "I dunno, I don't even know what I'm doing today." Will I write? Read? Goof off on twitter? Any one is a possibility.
There is a downside to not thinking things through. When that needs to be done, life can get pretty stressful. What if we show up to such-and-such place and no one is there? What if I can't get in for an appointment last minute? Yes, sometimes planning and plotting are very much needed.
For the record I have not thought this post out. Others I have but I came up with this idea on the fly and went with it.
I think my panstering is part of my laid back personality. I have my moments of utter stress but mostly, I go with the flow. I don't worry about getting my credit cards (I only have two!) paid off. As long as I make the monthly payment on time and pay a little extra I will knock it down to zero eventually. Dinner? Grab a few ingredients and call it yummy. My car breaks down I roll my eyes and say, "Figures." At Christmas time I like not knowing what my presents are. Why bother wrapping them if I know exactly what's contained?
.... You know I never know how to end blog posts either.
