Yes I do tend to plan ahead. For example, in NaNo2011 I went in with only a brief synopsis and a general feel of the events just in my head; nothing was written down bar the one paragraph synopsis, which itself was very vague. I found that I didn't really have any sense of direction and just wrote whatever I wanted, and although one could argue that that tends to happen regardless in NaNo anyway due to the time pressures, I have found in other writing endeavours that a lack of a plan really does stifle my progress. I feel it's very important to have some sort of idea - written down, preferably - of both the start and end, but most importantly the events in the middle, because if not the story can fall apart.
