A few years back I learned something. Not every writer writes the same way. After networking with other authors and writing over 17 manuscripts, I knew that writers approach their projects differently.
It wasn't until I was working with children with learning disabilities that I realized that a lot of the patterns we have as adults are evident in the formative years of reading and writing. There are 4 types of writers. Plotters, linears, Pantsers and Puzzlers. It got to be so that I could tell which child was which and the types of problems they had with writing were the same problems that my fellow authors talk about having trouble with as adults.
From this I developed my workshop Understanding Your Writing Profile which helps writers discover what type of writer they are. I'm doing this workshop for the NEC local chapter in Wellesley on June 22. If you're in the area, please stop by and discover if you are a plotter, a linear, a pantser or a puzzler writer.
Until next time, many blessings to you, Lisa Mondello
