So, you may remember my last post where I put forth a poll to decide which idea I should follow through with for this year’s NaNoWriMo and, after having to call in a friend to smash down the tie breaker, there is a verdict!
This year, my NaNoWriMo project shall be…
The Deconstructor! The tale of a serial killer and the revelations a copy cat killer brings about.
Okay, so I have my story. Now comes the tough bit – time to start planning! Now, I already know the basic plot. I know how this story starts and I know where it ends up. I just need to straighten out that wibbly bit in the middle. I’m really looking forward to this – not only am I excited by the concept but for so long I’ve just been writing my Twyned Earth series and I think a break from that will give me fresh eyes to go back and look at it properly. I am very close to having finished the final book in the trilogy which means editing time! And I think we all know that editing and fresh eyes go together like me and marshmallows. Oh yes. That’s pretty darn well.
I have a pretty intense October coming up. I really want to have Book 3 finished before the start of NaNo so that I don’t lose my flow for the final scenes. I also have a fairly intricate Halloween costume to craft and a novel to plan before October 28th. Oh, and Pokemon X is coming out on the 12th. Yes, Pokemon is high on my list of priorities. Don’t look at me like that.
So, if you don’t hear from me in a while – you know why!
Is anyone else doing NaNo? Have you got your stories picked out yet or are you going to see what you dream up on October 31st?
