NaNo and miniWriMo Day 8 (or 9) checkin

How is everyone doing? I've got some word wars scheduled for tomorrow - and also for Saturday morning (can do other times if needed) to help get those word counts up.

Question - Any surprises with this year's project? Perhaps a minor character that has taken over the story - or maybe the narrative is going in a different direction?

Finally, are you a planner (have an outline etc before you start nano or miniwrimo), a pantster (someone that sits down on Nov 1st and just starts writing) or do you fall somewhere in between?

Let us know how you're doing! We can do this!!!

I'm not doing NaNo this year, but I've never been a planner. Which can sometimes cause me a lot of problems. I will make notes if something occurs to me that I don't want to forget, but I don't outline.

managed to stay caught up, barely through Wednesday's count. Still have today's to go but hoping I can get that in after getting home tonight.

I think I'm a bit of an inbetweener. I knew what I wanted to write, I made very broad, vague notes for the main events in the story (mainly so I don't forget anything), and when I hit a new chapter I look at what I want to cover in it and make short sentences or partial sentences to jog my memory.

So it's 'sorta' and outline...but its not super detailed and its not something that is mostly done before NaNo starts...if that makes sense
