Plotter or Pantser How do Writers Write?

a_cure_for_writers_blockI’m fascinated on how writers write and the writing processes they utilize.

All writers have an unique writing process.

This is how I write my latest Work in Progress (WIP)

 Karen Tyrrell ‘First an inspired idea arrives with an ending, taking over my thoughts. For weeks I percolate the story until I could visualize my main character and what drives her. Next I write the first chapter in the characters voice, expressing her dreams and fears. Then I plan the story in detail from beginning to end, including her brick wall challenges and ultimately the resolution.’


Karen Tyrrell’s books: Jo-Kin Battles the It, Harry Helps Grandpa Remember, Stop the Bully, Bailey Beats the blah

I surveyed children’s writers from  Just Write for Kids on how they write

I asked: ‘What’s your writing process?

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Or both? What writing and planning techniques do you use?’

Plotter = Plots and plans story from beginning to end

Pantser = Writes by their seat of their pants! Creates the story as they go.

PantserPlotterAlison Douglas Stegert ‘A pantsing plotter. I think… Synopsis, outline, Scrivener cards, starting at the end–but running with good ideas that veer off the plan to see what happens!- Alison is an emerging mid-grade fantasy adventure novel author.

Debra Tidball ‘Beyond the initial idea I’m definitely a pantser! I find it hard to plot before I’ve played around with my characters and gotten to know them a bit first. It does mean many of my stories have a tendency to ‘run aground’ and stagnate for a while, waiting for a new wave of panster inspiration to sweep in and save them! Oh – and the endings can be rather elusive – a bit more ‘plotserism’ would be helpful. Debra is a picture book author of When I see Grandma

Renee Price ‘I’m sparked by the initial idea then write by the seat of my pants until I’ve spewed every last thought onto paper. I let it sit for a day or two then return to plot, plan, and plot! Renee is a picture book author of Digby’s Moon Mission.

 Katie Bingham Pants for shorter pieces and plotted pantser for novels here. My plotting is mostly segmenting a character, relationship or story progression into sub-headings and then pantsing the smaller chunks and then putting it all back together like a big jigsaw puzzle. Katie is a reviewer for CBCA and school teacher.


 Kathy Creamer Always a pantser until I’ve written the whole story, then I go back and wickedly plot the hell out of the manuscript!  Kathy is a picture book author and illustrator

 Emma Mactaggart ‘I am a PANTSER. I can only begin to write if I have the last line! It is a response to a flash of a thought, and then I give it time to write / rewrite / and write again. The planning I do then is the production side of things, creating a time-line to ensure the books land when I want them too! Emma is a picture book author and workshop presenter

Melissa Gijsbers Khalinsky ‘A plotting pantser? I like to have an idea of where the story is going, and the ending, but I mostly let the story go where it goes. I mostly talk through the plot with my kids (as they are the age group I write for as well as having some great ideas to make the story stronger) Melissa is a mid-grade and short story author

 What the Survey revealed …

Writers write in similar ways, often with a blend of plotting and pantsing.

The secret to a successful book and successful writing is …

Books in Homes Raises Literacy

BooksinHomes_Horizontal_Orange-WhiteYIPEE! I’m now a volunteer Role Model for Books in Homes  charitable organization, to inspire young readers. Today I handed out books at Loganlea High School Book Giving Assembly to promote literacy and the enjoyment of reading.

 Books in Homes talk at  Loganlea High School

Books in Homes talk at Loganlea High School students & teachers

Books in Homes is an inspiring foundation, donating books to kids in low socio- economic circumstances and remote areas. I’m so proud to be a part of the team.

What does Books in Homes do?

  • Involves whole-school-communities in creating a ‘value’ for reading.
  • Supports schools to increase student attendance.
  • Supports remote and low socio-economic schools by giving them equal access to books-of-choice as their more advantaged urban peers.
  • Motivates families and students to view reading as an ‘everyday’ activity.
  • Creates a legacy of books-of-choice in low socio-economic homes.

 How has Reading Transformed my life?

This is part of my motivational speech I delivered …

‘My name’s Karen Tyrrell. I’m a Logan award winning children’s author and school teacher. I write books to empower kids to live STRONG. My hilarious book STOP the Bully teaches bully prevention skills and Jo-kin Battles the It teaches perseverance and to NEVER, ever give up.

Karen Tyrrell shares STOP the Bully and Jo-Kin Battles the It

‘I came from low socio-economic area in Sydney. My dad was a postie, my mum worked at home. I was bullied terribly in the playground. We had no books in our house. I learned if I worked hard at school, I could win book prizes as a reward. I turned to reading as a way to empower myself to live strong and to dream BIG.

‘Books will open up a whole new world of possibilities for you. You can learn how to overcome your challenges and have FUN at the same time.’

Happy Christmas from Kate and Winell Road!

winell-road-cover-2When Winell Road: Beneath the Surface was released back in April, Kate didn’t embark on a great deal of promotion. Because of a lot of ‘things’. So, to make up for that and to kick off the festivities for her favourite time of year – Christmas! – she’s taken Winell Road on a little tour, hoping to spread the word and introduce lots of new young readers to, what she believes is, a great big dollop of sci-fi fun and adventure.

Here’s a little info…


Twelve-year old Jack Mills lives at 5 Winell Road and has probably the world’s weirdest neighbours. Like freakishly weird. And to top it off, he lives with Mum: nosy, interfering, a hideous cook, and Dad: unsuccessful inventor of the Camera Belt and Self-Closing Window. All in all, it’s a boring, embarrassing, dead-end place to live.

So when Jack arrives home from school one day, a close shave with a UFO is the last thing he expects. But the fact it doesn’t abduct him, and that no one else, not even Mum, sees the gigantic flying saucer hovering over the street, adds a whole new layer of strange.

Soon after, an alien encounter threatens Jack’s life and he becomes embroiled in a galaxy-saving mission. With the assistance of his new neighbour, frighteningly tall Roxy Fox, he discovers Winell Road is hiding secrets—secrets Jack might wish he’d never uncovered.


If you’re still not sure, here’s a couple of reviews…

‘Winell Road: Beneath the Surface is a fast-paced middle-grade adventure story with the feel of Men in Black. Jack is a smart, resourceful boy with more abilities than he’s ever dreamed off, and he finds out that the world is a far stranger place than he imagined. The action is non-stop and will keep readers riveted.’

‘This book will work wonderfully read aloud in class. There are enough cliff-hanger chapter endings to keep them begging for more. It will also promote discussion about making snap judgments while providing plenty of scope for related art projects.’ Buzz Words Magazine

Go to Goodreads to see a few more.


Kate Foster is an Englishwoman on the Gold Coast in Australia. A middle grade writer, freelance editor, the editorial director at Lakewater Press and all around lover of the written word, she is ruled by her three sons, husband and spoodle pup. Not one to have a quiet day, she spends her free time mentoring new writers in contests like Nest Pitch and Pitch Wars, judging writing contests and helping out at Writers Activation on the Gold Coast. Other than that, she likes laying in bed or by the pool with a book!


It would make a great stocking filler for children. BUT, if you’re feeling particularly lucky, she’s giving away three signed copies just in time for Christmas! Yippee!

Switch to Photoelectric Fire Alarms

House_Fire_www_normancope_comI urge the government to mandate and legislate photoelectric fire alarms for homes … and ban ionization smoke alarms.


Photoelectric fire alarms save lives by alerting the occupants early, in time to escape safely. Photoelectric fire alarms STOP smouldering AND flame house fires!

WHY am I blogging on Photoelectric Fire Alarms?

I’m passionate about saving lives after hearing Louie Naumovski speak at     Logan City Women in Business meeting. Together, we can bring about change…

“I’d like ionization alarms to be banned, that’s first and foremost. I want photoelectric smoke alarms to be mandated and legislated, not just here in the state of Queensland, but across Australia, in every bedroom and in every hallway, for the earliest possible warning to escape a flaming fire.” Mr Naumovski,                   Logan House Fire Support Network

 Louie and I at Logan City Women in Business

Louie and I at Logan City Women in Business

Realities of House Fires

Thousands of people die because they don’t have photoelectric fire alarms in their houses, in nursing homes, shops and their businesses. Millions of dollars go up in smoke because of senseless fires.

The old fashioned smoke alarms DON’T work! Often they fail to activate for slow smouldering fires.
Your house could be alight and you could die of poisonous smoke BEFORE you hear the alarm.

Do you have a Smoke Alarm like this?

Ionization Smoke Alarm

Ionization Smoke Alarm

These smoke alarms or ionization alarms are dangerous. They are radioactive AND have a history of failing to activate. Replace them with photoelectric fire alarms.

They could SAVE your life and your loved ones.

Why install Photoelectric Fire Alarms?

1. They SAVE lives.
2. These alarms alert the occupants early, in time to escape safely.
3. They detect smoke and flames BEFORE any other alarms.
4. Fire and emergency services support photoelectric fire alarms.

Photo Electric Fire Alarm

Photo Electric Fire Alarm with me, Karen & Louie

What can YOU do to SAVE lives?

1. Urge the Australian and Queensland Governments to take action.
2. Switch your smoke alarms to photoelectric fire alarms.
3. Tell everyone you know about photoelectric fire alarms.
4. Contact Louie Naumovski of the Logan House Fire Support Network
5. Share this Blog on Facebook and social media

 Are you switching to Photoelectric Fire Alarms?

What positive action will you take?

My joy, my Pupil became the Principal

Anthony Pitt, Karen Tyrrell, David Kinniburgh

Anthony Pitt, Karen Tyrrell. David Kinniburgh

The Principal of Fairvale Public School invited me, Karen Tyrrell author and teacher for a unique school reunion. Principal, Anthony Pitt invited me to present my children’s resilience book Jo-Kin Battles the It to his school.

My Pupil became the Principal

In 1979, I taught Anthony in Kindergarten at Fairfield West Public school. Two years ago, Anthony contacted me via Facebook, searching for his ‘favourite teacher’. Soon after, he bought all my resilience books for his school library:

Bailey Beats the Blah, STOP the Bully, Harry Helps Grandpa Remember,

Karen Tyrrells Childrens books

In August, I announced I was flying to Sydney for a Jo-Kin Battles the It book signing event at Dymocks Penrith. Anthony requested an author talk. PS Check out my REVIEWS

Author Talk

I presented an interactive author talk to two hundred students in the assembly hall. The kids and teachers treated me like a rock star with cheers, claps and a barrage of questions. To my surprise, I met teacher David Kinniburgh, another pupil who I  taught in Year 2 several years ago.

#4 More Reunions at Dymocks Penrith

Joanne Brummell, another ex-pupil from Fairfield West came along to meet me.  I met Romayne Penning, a girl I went to school with at Mt Pritchard East.  My husband’s school friend, John Lowe came along with his daughter to buy my books. Facebook fiend Susan Hili brought her children and grand children.

What amazing school reunions!

Anthony Pitt shared this very touching testimonial on my author visit …

“Inspiring, engaging and relevant!

Sensational author, Karen Tyrrell, visited Fairvale PS to talk to the students about all of her books and to promote her most recent book, Jo-Kin Battles the It

The students were captivated by her presentation. She came dressed in character so right from the word go they were engaged. Karen encouraged audience participation and allowed for plenty of question time.

Personally, it was a special moment for me because Karen Tyrrell was my Kindergarten teacher. I remember her warmth, nurturing and encouraging nature back then and meeting up with her all of these years later nothing has changed.

A truly remarkable author and teacher who continues to touch the lives of the very young and the not so young.” Anthony Pitt, Principal, Fairvale PS

Ranita wrote story "Teaching Walrus becomes Author Walrus."

Ranita’s story about me “Teaching Walrus becomes Author Walrus.”

#6 Tips for Presenting Author Talks to Schools

  1. Prepare your interactive talk with opportunities for the kids to interact and participate. Check your costume, props and posters are ready.
  1. Come wearing costume, wigs, hats etc and bring props. Speak in character. I wore my red Captain Astra uniform with shoulder pads, red gumboots, blue wig, yellow vinyl star belt and knee pads.
  2. Introduce yourself and why you write in an inspiring kid-friendly way from the authors and characters point of view.
  3. Talk about each of your books in a FUN engaging way. Read sections from your books. Share tips on writing creative stories.
  1. Let the kids ask you questions about how you write and where you get your ideas.
  1. Ask the kids questions about your books in the form of a quiz. Give out prizes of bookmarks and postcards for correct answers.

I used humour in writing  Jo-Kin Battles the It as I struggled with mental health issues triggered by severe bullying and harassment from the parents of my school student. Jo-Kin Battles the It became a fun-like refuge as I was simultaneously wrote a gut-wrenching memoir, Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness.
