Plotter, Pantzer, Leap Frogger

Pretty much everyone knows what a Plotter is -- someone who plots the story before s/he writes it, and a Pantzer is one who writes by the seat of the pants (and sometimes out of sequence). I recently heard Leap Frogger. Plot 3 chapters, write the next 3 by the seat of the pants, plot the next...

It's an interesting idea, but I think I'll stick with my pantzing.

May you be proud of your work today.

I thought I only missed one day, but my schedule has been wonky, so I need to catch up...

All that matters is that you're all right...you're so regular in your postings that when one is missed we start to be concerned about you!

Thanks, I was running short of sleep for a while during the conference, and yesterday morning had a horrible eye thing going on (think I scratched it and aggravated by spring allergies).
