The answer was to generalise the characters e.g. Pirate princess seeks to deliver object from dying white knight, Pirate prince usurps the kingdom and sets it on a course to destruction. By thinking of the story and characters in this very basic one-dimensional way, I was able to step back from the characters and plot the story.

Other ideas: go for a walk / swim. Write something else. (less)

If multiple drafts are a thing, how can an author who is a panster still screw up the ending?

Because multiple drafts are not a thing.





One draft, multiple edits.





I know it sounds the same but it’s not. Once you have written your draft, even as a panster, you start analysing what you have, and apply your technical skills to improving that draft. This is part of the writing craft.





Planner: a writer who does the technical story analysis before the first draft.





Panster: a writer who does the tech
