It’s almost that time again. National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo is only a few weeks away at this point and I am not actually as ready as I’d like to be. Are you?
I’m trying to plot out things. I have an idea of what needs to happen in the story, but I’m also left with a lot of plot holes.That’s what I am trying to get some work done on.
My characters actually introduced themselves to me a few months back and they had to sit and wait patiently for me to be ready to work with them. November is when they get their turn and chance to shine. Which came first for you this year? The characters or the plot? Honestly my plot usually surfaces first, but this year, it was these two amazing characters that showed up in the middle of another piece I am working on, and I had to remove them because they don’t belong. They will get their own story.
So what you are you working on for NaNoWriMo this year? Are you in the planning stages, developing plot time or are you going to wing the whole thing?
