Happy Halloween! Or as I tend to regard today, the last day before National Novel Writing Month! It all starts tomorrow–or continues, as I’ve been prepping all month. I finished revising the first half (?) of The Princess Beyond the Thorns, which clocked in at 53,000 words. So if I write 50,000 in November, I should have a very solid fantasy novel there.
Along with the revisions, I outlined my plot based on a few different plotting structures, and put together 20-page character descriptions for my four protagonists and three villains – and have most recently been working on distilling each of those descriptions down to a one-pager for each character, for easier reference. I need to do the last three this afternoon, in fact!
And finally, I have my word count chart ready to go for another year.
I think I’m ready for NaNo to start… Lots of luck to you if you’re also going on the writing journey this year! Find me over on the NaNoWriMo website as CherylMahoney if you’d like to be NaNo buddies. 🙂
