So, I told a falsehood last time I was writing here, I said I was going to do all the preparation. Well life has a way of getting in the way of the best laid plans. I’ve got plenty of research into the science of my novel, I’ve even drawn out designs for the vessel it was to take place in – but that’s as far as I got. Well not quite, I did spec out two characters, but they were more straw men meant to get the ball rolling. I mean one was a private detective paid to be on, what in cost terms, is the equivalent of an exclusive luxury round the world cruise. It wasn’t meant to make sense, it was just meant to be a start.
So, this story I wanted to tell, the rules I set myself, needed to be fully plotted out and researched to work. I haven’t done that, and it’s twenty minutes to NaNoWriMo. New plan then, I’m going to wing it. I don’t have any idea what the plot will be, but I’ll go at something hell for leather from midnight. The 50k day one is still the goal – might be even tougher now, but doesn’t that sound like even more fun?
Until I’ve got the first 50k, weather it’s day one, or day thirty, I’ll be a bit quiet here.
