About Jo McClelland Phillips

Disclaimer: MUM CANNOT READ THIS BOOK!

Confessions of a Pantser: I HATE planning my writing.

Definition: 
A pantser is the type of writer who likes to fly by the seat of their pants and write without an outline or roadmap for their plot.

Every year I write a novel (pants), and for the last two years, I haven't finished them. That's just not good enough. So after editing my YA manuscript at Varuna, The International Writer's House in NSW, Australia, and while my beta readers have it, I thought I would push myself for this year's novel.

Here's what I have committed to do:
  1. First Time Planning (Spreadsheets and everything!)
  2. First Adult Novel (There are even curse words and sex in it!)
  3. First Time Publishing unedited work for others to read.
  4. Plan and Write the novel by 25 December 2021
  5. Follow Abbie Emmons (On Patreon) & Story Grid Strategies
About the Project
Working Title: This Is Not A Fantasy Novel
Genre: Thriller
Age: Adult
More To Come (This is already more than I usually know when writing a novel.)
Goals
1 of 100 patrons
When I reach 100 patrons, I will host the first Live #AskJo where I will answer your questions and talk about what I love and hate about planning vs pantsing.
