NaNo Journal: October 31, 2011
October 31, 2011
Well, it's almost here, and of course I'm trying not to stress out. I lost a whole week of planning to Strep Throat, and I still don't feel like myself.
I just thought if I were prepared--if I had everything planned out, I would more than likely stay on track and finish this year. Oh well. I will fly by the seat of my pants if I have to. It's more my style anyway.
As the hour draws nearer, I'm getting excited. I finally figured out where I'm going to start my story. It hit me today as I was sitting in my car waiting on kids. I've been playing with a few ideas, but nothing felt quite right until now--I could kick myself for not thinking of this sooner.
My NaNo project is going to focus on my Eden Collection of stories, following Brian Oldham as he steps into his predetermined role within the society that "knows what's best"... Ends will be tied, secrets revealed, and the empire will waiver. I can' wait to start writing it.
I'm planning to kick off NaNo at Midnight, and at least write for an hour before calling it a night. We'll see how it goes.
Good Luck, Wrimos!
