There are three pretty standard categories for describing our plotting and writing styles during NaNoWriMo: Planner, Pantster and Plantser. Personally, I think I need a fourth: I definitely work best with a plan in front of me, but I’m terrible for procrastinating. Actually coming up with said plan can be a challenge.
There’s still plenty of time to come up with a solid framework before November 1st hits though, so I thought I’d share some of my strategies for preparing for NaNoWriMo when you’re a little pressed for time.
I hope some of these might be helpful to you too. And, if you are participating in this year’s NaNoWriMo, please let me know what you’re planning to write, I’d love to follow your progress.
