Alligator Preserves Episode 19: Are You A Pantser?

Do you even know what a pantser is?

In this episode I visit and laugh and really mess up a knock-knock joke with Annalisa Parent, writing coach and author of “Storytelling for Pantsers: How to Write and Revise Your Novel Without an Outline.”

Annalisa discusses the benefits of planning and pantsing when it comes to writing a book, how neuroscience influences creativity, ways to work around writer’s block, the evolution of language, and much more.
