NaNoWriMo is coming, folks. Are you guys ready?
I am trying to get through a good chunk of GNR3 during October, as well as finish up this short story I’ve been fiddling with. I want to do something completely different for NaNo this year, something I haven’t messed with already. Last year it was DBG…the year before that I was revisiting an old project…it’s time to start out with a blank slate. Part of this is probably drawn from me just wanting to try something that doesn’t involve zombies.
I have some ideas, but I’m not jumping into over-planning. This may seem odd, coming on the heels of my “I love outlining!” post, but there’s a difference here. It’s one thing to outline, but quite something else to plan everything within an inch of its life. I find the more I get bogged down in details (creating religions, starship types, etc), the worse I do when it comes to actual writing. I’m better off with just a plotline to follow; I can fill in the blanks happily on my own as I write.
It’s kind of a gloomy day here in SoCal. Good zombie weather…
