{Guest Post+G!veaway} Cursing Athena by Lisa Sanchez

Today I have a guest post from Author of Cursing Athena, Lisa Sanchez and a giveaway of the book. Thank you so much for being here today Lisa! Owning your writing style and feeling good about it If you’re a book junkie like me, and you stalk author’s and book reviewer’s blogs for the latest and greatest, then the words “plotter” and “panster” should sound very familiar to you. If not, no need to worry. Rest assured, I’m going to give you a quick rundown before I continue on with my post. Plotter- this particular brand of author prefers to “plot out” the events that will happen in their novel before they begin writing. They’re very organized, and often use tools such as timelines, charts and detailed synopses to aid them in completing their story. There are no surprises. They know exactly where their story is going before they start typing the first paragraph. Panster- this brand of author flies by the seat of their pants. They don’t plan ahead…. Read more »
