    I usually talk out at least some of my plot/story ideas with my husband beforehand, so I guess that counts as not going it completely alone. Otherwise, let me at those (virtual) post-its and index cards! 😀

      It was a fun experience to plot with others, and I am writing so much faster now.

    I’ve never plotted with anyone, but then I’ve never completed a novel! Maybe I should involve a group and I’ll actually finish one. 🙂

      I loved it- I am writing so much faster and having to cut less because I suddenly realize it’s not going anywhere.

    I’m a pantster, too. I’m learning to plot more though–your story is inspiring. I do have a few critique partners and friends who let me bounce ideas off them, so I guess I’m not doing it completely alone.

      I am really liking this plotting with others thing, it is helping so much. I really recommend it- just don’t over plot.

    I never plotted with anyone. Well I don’t usually plot at all. And when I do, they tend to be so basic as to be non-existent.

      I used to get half way through my book and then sit down and figure out how I was getting them from the middle of the story to the end- for book 2 I actually had to get out a map!
