November 2019 Topic – Plotter or Pantser?

Welcome to the November 2019 monhtly topic for SinCLA/Blog. If you’re new here, or want to find out what upcoming topics will be, be sure to check out our Getting Started post.

For the November 2019 monthly topic, we looked for something both universal and that also tied in to supporting our authors who are participating in National Novel Writing Month, which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year.

So, this month’s question is:
