As promised to myself, tomorrow I will begin my NaNoWriMo trial. I have what I believe, to be a fabulous storyline connected to a place I know and love. I don't think I have ever read anything like it, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is an original. All I can tell you is that it is a children's book.
I have written quick chapter notes to give myself an idea where the story is going and I am absolutely certain of how I want it to end.
I am going to spend today working on character outlines and fleshing out the chapters a bit more, as well as drawing a map of the location. If I can get that all done in preparation for tomorrow, then I will feel a lot more confident about actually achieving my goal.
Once I am prepared for this month's trial run, I hope to spend some time preparing for the real NaNoWriMo,which I do have a story idea for, but I need to flesh it out more.
So wish me luck in my adventure this month. I wonder if I might be taking a fall before I start, as I have arranged to have my carpets cleaned tomorrow and then I have scrap day all Saturday. Mmmm, may have to get up early to get a head start.
I shall let you know each week how I get on and fingers crossed I may be able to celebrate with you at the end of the month, with a first draft completed.
