Storytelling for Pantsers
How to Write and Revise Your Novel Without an Outline
by Annalisa Parent
Pub Date 01 Oct 2017
Are you a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants writer? Hungry for a book that shows you how to write and revise your novel without an outline?
Discover the secret sauce to help those of us seat-flyers get at least some grounding in what we do, and to find and use a system in the chaos that is pantsing.
This book is for you if you:
• Are still on chapter one - You should read this book if you have started a novel at least 68 times (the same novel) and only written the first chapter
• Jump around - You should read this book if you write chapter 1. And then chapter 5. And then chapter 2. etc.
• Write to Discover - You should read this book if you need to write to discover your story. (“I just watch my characters and write down what they do.”)
• Get Lost in the Weeds - You should read this book if you get lost in the weeds of writing and revision because portions of your novel are in different phases of the writing process.
• Feel Writing is Complicated - You should read this book if you feel frustrated because “Dang it; writing’s hard enough. Why do I always have to complicate it?”
• Wear Pants - You should read this book if you think the cover of this book is cool, or wear pants. Because, hey, the cover is cool. So are you, and so is this book. (Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? Pshaw.)
Author and Writing Coach Annalisa Parent approaches the topic with a mix of humor and depth that will spark your writing.

Here’s what I love about Annalisa. Yes, she is hilarious; and yes, her book is brimming over with invaluable practical writerly wisdom. (An example among a thousand: when she talks about “the monsters under your bed.” Oh, you think there aren’t any?) But what I love is that her sheer love of great writing—in other words, her love of life—pours out of every paragraph. Read her book. It will infuse joy into your days and make you a better writer.
