NaNo Prep – Scene Outline

I’ve started working out the scene outline for On / Off in preparation for NaNo. I’ve done some rough outlines before, but never worked with a thorough scene outline – something that really works out to cover ~200-500 words per section. I read about them a while back, but never invested that kind of prep time. I mean – if I was going to write the scene overviews – I might as well just write the scene. However, since I am not starting ahead of time, I want to give myself every chance to succeed in this.

With an ultimate goal of 100k, I’m looking at pulling together 200 scenes at a minimum. So far, I’m up to 12. Some of them will easily be 1-2k right now, so even though I’m nowhere near my goal, I feel like I am making solid progress.

I’m still tossing around the fourth thread and trying to decide whether to include it or cut it completely. I have almost no information about it, so right now it feels flimsy and empty. If I am going to develop scenes for it, I’ll have to get some more details about it, but I haven’t done that prep work yet. Still – that means there are potentially a number of scenes that could go in there that I haven’t even begun to consider yet.

So, all in all, preparation continues and I’m still somewhat confident about how the month will go. I don’t need November to rush and get here by any means, but I do want to get started.
