This year marks my fourth attempt at Nano, and for all previous years I decided to plan my novel before writing. Hasn’t worked for me yet though, as I have yet to make it to the 50k (Can’t seem to turn off that inner editor!). I considered winging it this year, and I even had a potential plot waiting in the wings. I wound up going with a somewhat planned story though. So far so good. I’m considering ‘pantsing’ it next year and I’m curious to hear peoples experiences with the whole plan-no plan debate for nano. Did you plan your story or did you wing it? Maybe both? What worked for you or what didn’t?
