While creating a fixed [[outline]] before November is allowed and even encouraged, some Wrimos prefer to go without. Because of this, pantsers vary greatly in extremity. The Extremist Pantser does absolutely no planning at all, they do not even come up with a vague [[plot|idea]] before november 1. Others come up with an idea before November 1, but lack an outline of any sort. Others come up with an outline and/or synopsis before November 1, but the outline/synopsis is not fixed. Still others do little or no pre-November planning, but find time to write a flexible outline during November.
