The group released third album Brand New Eyes last year and have spent much of 2010 on tour.
"We're going on a tour in South America and then we're taking time off and we're writing for a new record," Williams told MTV News of the band's plan for 2011. "We're kind of at the end of this record but it's bittersweet.
"We like to do it at home mostly," the singer said of Paramore's writing process. "We like to wait and kind of really focus on the records when we have time off."
Williams claimed that her highlight of the year was getting to play at the MTV Video Music Awards in September.
