This is true. And as Liz mentioned up-thread, process is individual. There is no one way to plot, and there is no one way to pants.

I will say as an out-and-out pantser—one who has NO idea how my story will end—it's so much easier for me to write myself into a corner than it is for a plotter. I absolutely will write myself into a corner every dadgum time if I do not pay attention to and make use of all the tools in my toolbox as I write.
