I’m sorry if it came out a little judgmental. Honestly, that wasn’t my intent. But I’ve seen so many writers struggle to break down those walls they’ve built up in order to move past “Once upon a time”, only because the walls were covered in their notes and plot points. My goal with this piece was to give another perspective to those who struggle to find the middle ground between being a plotter and a pantser. (Or, as NaNo now calls it, being a plantser.) It came out harsh only so that it would be a much needed push to those who needed it. Besides, NaNo isn’t about finishing. It’s about starting. I just want to help people start. Obviously my post wasn’t targeted at every plotter. Some do it quite well, after all.
