So, you're pantsing your novel and everything is going great. At a certain point does the whole story seem to come to you or does it just continue to pour out 1k to 2k words at a time? Is it really important to know where your story is going? Can I just trust in the process that this will turn into a novel? Is it okay to have only a loose idea of what the story could be about and continuously be willing to change directions? At some point do you feel you need to firm up the plot? I want to surprise myself with this story. It's already happened a few times. I'm now contemplating a major overhaul of my existing pages to sort of change the course of the story, but I still don't really know where I'm going with it. I guess a lot of pantsing is really trusting your gut. How much do you trust your intuition? I really want this story to work, but it makes me a little nervous not to have more of a plan. Have you pantsed a whole novel? Were you happy with the results?
