Preparing for National Novel Writing Month is much more intense than I believed. I thought you could have a fully fleshed out synopsis (idea) and then run with it. Today, I was fortunate enough to have a NaNoWriMo mentor decide to work with me this November.
The first thing she did was sent me a pre-Nano checklist. Guess what was on it? My favorite nemesis -- plotting! She suggests doing a basic outline and characterization for my main characters (at least)!
Okay, okay. So she's right -- but ouch! All that has to be done in the next 23 hours or so! NaNo starts on 11/1 at midnight. Arrgh!
So, I'll stop complaining and start plotting...my story that is. :-)
Ta-ta for now!
