So, there’s only one more week until NaNoWriMo! (give or take) Is everybody ready?
First things first. Things have been a little crazy for me this week, so the weekly story may be a little late. It will come, just maybe not by the weekend.
With that in mind, I want to talk about NaNoWriMo a little bit, and share what I’m doing. One of the big things I’m doing is prepping a little more than in the past. I’m using worksheets from here to develop my story. They are all very good, but the one that helped me the most is the plotting worksheet. If you haven’t got as much planned as you might have wanted, try them out, I think they’ll help.
I also thought I’d share a little bit about my story. This isn’t something I’ve done in the past, so let me know what you think. The story is called The Forgotten. It’s actually going to be based on a flash fiction I wrote by the same name. You can find that here. It won’t follow the main character of that story; however, it will follow a woman named Rayelle. Rayelle has heard stories like that for a long time. She was told that no matter what, she should never go outside at night. To do that would be certain death. One night, she had enough and ventured outside. To everyone’s surprise she didn’t die. She goes on a campaign to save as many people from the night as she can, until she catches the attention of entities that were better left alone.
I’m hoping it’ll turn out well. I’ll post more about it as it get’s going. In the meantime, what is everyone else doing? What exciting stories do you have bouncing around in your head? And most importantly, are you ready?
