Do you outline your posts (planning) or do you just go ahead by the seat of your pants (pantzing) ?
I like the word, Pantzing!
I am more of a planner than an impulse writer. I plan my posts at least one day in advance. But sometimes, I run short of time, inspiration, or prompts, and then I do Pantzing!
Before I go to sleep, I make sure that all my posts for the next day are written, proof-read, and pre-scheduled. Otherwise, I get stressed out and worry that I will have to scramble to write the posts on the same day. It’s part of my self-diagnosed OCD, where I need to plan for the next day in detail. This was one of the reasons that I stopped doing the daily prompts posts, in which I used to combine 3-5 prompts from the same day and write a post. It was generating stress and sometimes I would write below par posts.
For me, planning is the key to stress-free blogging. Another factor also plays a role in making planning important for me and that are my grandmotherly duties. I don’t know when I would be asked to look after one of my grandkids, and I have to make sure that my blog is not neglected.
I wrote this post today, so I’d call this Pantzing! Lol
(Both Grammarly and autocorrect had lot of issues with Pantzing)
