S1E1 – Plotting vs. Pantsing

Welcome to our very first episode! Join hosts Ley Esses and Leigh Hull as they talk through the experiences they’ve gathered in all aspects of writing.

Our first series is called First Draft, where we talk about content and building a story that readers can’t put down.

In this episode, we discuss different approaches to the writing process, primarily outline writing (“plotters”) represented by Ley Esses, and discovery writing (“pantsers”) like Leigh Hull. Everyone has a slightly different method to the madness that is storytelling, and knowing that about your own style can help you not waste time in getting your story written. First aired August 1, 2019.
