    See @Carol Rose's latest addition to The Writing Wiki. I can't reply there to be able to add this one by literary agent Evan Marshall:

    There is a marked leaning towards plotting, while not ignoring pantsing, and a useful section on three modes of writing: action (show not tell) summary (tell not show) and dialogue.

    Nifty bit of cross referencing there, our @Carol Rose.

    I used a plot coach for my last two novels - she helped a lot! I used to be a pantser, but can definitely see the value of plotting. If anyone is interested, Cathy Yardley has written a very useful book, Rock Your Plot: Rock Your Plot: A Simple System for Plotting Your Novel (Rock Your Writing Book 1) - Kindle edition by Cathy Yardley. Reference Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.
