I wanted to do a writing post and talk about being a plotter vs. a pantster . I've done both. I've outlined entire stories and used to that to create the first draft but I've also just started writing on the fly. I can tell you that outlining is the best method. What I've found is that when I just start  a story with no planning, the excitement of a new idea and getting that all on paper wears off.

Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but...
