at times like that I go semi plotter and write out some chapter titles for things I've already dreamed would happen. I end changing half of them but it gives me a bit more structure when I oddly want it.
Unless you're unusually talented, you HAVE to plot your story before you begin. Some folks believe you just dive right into writing a story to "see where it takes you". Well, unless you've plotted, foreshadowed and forewarned, the story won't take you anywhere. So forget about being a "pantser"....you must learn to PLOT. Simple as that.
You can change, or flip back and forth, or do whatever you need to get the story out. There's no pants/plot rule book. Outline what you have, or draw on a white board, or use index cards, or whatever tool helps you see the story more clearly...brainstorm questions you have about the plot or characters, motivations, etc.
