The reason that I wouldn’t want to be famous is because of my writing style.

My writing style is called Pantsing. Yes, it sounds funny, doesn’t it? Have you heard of the term before?

Pantsing means that I write by the seat of my pants. If an idea strikes me then I have to sit down to write the flow of words that stream out of my head as I think them, until the flow is done. It can happen at any moment, day or night.

I can Pants when my children are at home, when they’re climbing all over me with the tv on in the background. I am perfectly capable of blocking out the world when I’m in the Pantsing Zone. It can come across like I’m being rude, but honestly, if you can see me typing feverishly then you can assume that I’m in the zone, and therefore not likely to answer you. It’s just common sense.

Being a Pantser almost guaranteesĀ that I wouldn’t be able to work with a publishing house. Simply because I can only write to any reasonable degree when the planets are aligned, or, well, when the Pantsing takes over.

I can’t force myself to write. If I did then it would not be worth reading.
