So this is my second year doing NaNoWriMo. I am doing the proper one for the first time. (Last time I did the YWP so i could pick my word count goals) I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how I can keep on track. I have an outline for the novel I want to write but people often say that you don't have to stick to your plan if you have other ideas. I think this may be problematic if you go off in one direction then get stuck? Is it better to maybe just stick to your plan so you can finish NaNo and then go back and change it later? Are there any other tips you guys have?
