No if, ands or buts

Recommended Posts

You gotta keep them buts in the right place. Mine has been asittin' more and more since I turned 78 years young. I was a lookin' around in my files of stories that I didn't finish for some reason or the other, found a goodun and wondered why I never finished it.

I know why I didn't finish it. I got to thinkin' too far out ahead of myself. Me, I have to let the story unfold. Its kind of like tryin' to look around a bend on a dirt road. You gotta wait until you get to the bend to get a peak at whats on the other side of that bend.

 

Some writers plot, and some writers plod. Me, I'm a plodder, and if I get to lookin' too far ahead, I plod right off the page, and end up with a but that ends up sittin'.

You know, I never thought of the difference between plotting and pantsing.   But now that you mention it, there is a third one, and that is plodding!

Now I know why so many butts can be found in ditches along the side of a road. I thunked too hard and didn't see what was right in front of me. :confused:
