So I have an idea for NaNoWriMo. It’s something I thought about starting a few months ago but didn’t want to indulge in yet another story when I should be finishing the others I’ve already started (see Finish What You Started). But NaNo states the story you write must be new, so I haven’t really got a choice. Oh darn, I have to start a brand new shiny idea…squee!
How is everyone else doing planning wise? I’m kind of throwing myself into it to distract myself from the current shambles my life is. So for the first time ever I’m doing a lot of mind planning for a NaNo novel. I say mind planning because I can’t plan on paper for long before I want to storm into a novel. As I can’t start this one for a few more weeks I’m stuck planning the story out. Luckily this one has been bubbling around in my head for a few months so when I start at least I’ll hit the ground running.
It’s sort of horror, thriller, sci-fi (won’t that be a blast to figure out) and its definitely different to anything I’ve written before. For a start this will be the first time I’ve had a female main character. Any suggestions on how to think like a woman would be greatly appreciated…I’m guessing it has something to do with shoes and cooking?? *ducks*
Let me know how you’re all doing with your pre-nano preparations. And feel free to add me as a buddy on the main site.
