Writing

Time to Get Started.

It’s 1st November which means it’s time to get writing on this year’s NaNoWriMo.

I’m feeling a real mixture of emotions – excitement, terror, enthusiasm and downright panic. I’ve been spending the last few days trying to get organised and prepared, this is something I’ve never really done before – I’ve always just dived in headfirst. In the hopes that having some sort of plan will help me to get through the month I’ve managed to pull together:

  • A setting
  • One basically developed character
  • 5-6 unnamed characters
  • The basic plot for the first 8-10K
  • A handful of scenes to be included
  • Approximately 80 minutes of soundtrack

I definitely feel like I can sit down today and start working. Ideally I would have liked to get a bit more of an idea of the characters but hopefully as I start to write they’ll become better formed. I’m also hoping that as I work through the basic plot that I have I’ll be able to add more to the plan.

I really hope that it might work out this way, and that I won’t be ready to throw in the towel by Friday!

    1. Most of the ideas I have for this have come out of listening to music, it’s definitely something very important to me and seems to help me creatively.
