I’ve become addicted to my characters and their story!
Every waking (and half conscious) moment is consumed by images of characters and scenes. They are showing up in my dreams now. And the result is that I’m back on track with my goal of outlining three short stories by the end of 30 days. Earlier this month, I modified my goal timeline due to Hubby’s surgery and recovery.
But I’m going to modify my goal one more time.
What I’ve completed since Oct 1st: character sketches for most of the main characters, basic description of the first three stories, and tons of research.
What I can finish by Oct 31st: detailed plot outlines for the first three stories.
Definitely that falls short of my declared goal of completing “rough drafts” of the novellas, but I can forgive myself for that. 🙂 It positions me perfectly to jump into NaNoWriMo this year. So, throughout November I’ll post my progress here and on the NaNoWriMo site. I decided that I’d take advantage of the opportunities they offer, including the bonus of networking with more writers. 😀
