When I first started doing NaNo I was a pantser. Writing an outline was something I definitely didn't want to waste the time on, but the end result was too garbled. So now I'm a reformed pantser, and I outline everything.
I've been working on my outline for three weeks now, and I'm determined to find the time to finish it in sometime in the next 6 days.
What's your NaNo strategy? Pantser, or outliner?
