Outlining

Okay, I have finally started thinking about NaNoWriMo in earnest. It has been on my mind for a few weeks now, but I haven’t really set down to think about the story at all. Last year, I just “pantsed” it and that worked out somewhat, but I wanted to be a little more focused this time.

I already knew I wanted to do another story with the characters from Jacoby Figurine – set earlier in their lives so that I could really show how they got along (or didn’t in some cases), but I didn’t have any ideas on where that would really start.

Tonight – I finally sat down to work out some of those thoughts and I’ve got a rough idea of how the first few chapters will run. It is probably less than I’ll need for the whole 50k, but it should get me through the first week or two. Once I’m off and running, I have a tendency to ignore my outlines anyway – so this is probably enough to get me to the point that I won’t be using it.

Ironically, I think this is going to be one of my least busy NaNoWriMos and yet I am most concerned about how I will do with it. I think that nervousness stems from two main factors: my failure to get anything done during Camp NaNoWriMo in April and my failure to finish the rewrite of Jacoby Figurine.

Well, I’m not done getting creative for the night, so I’m going to get back to it now. Good luck in your planning for NaNoWriMo 2013 if you are going to do it.
