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!
