I’m planning to do NaNoWriMo this year, and thus far I really think it’s going to help. I’m trying to outline extensively, and I tried to plug Lizardfic the novel into an outline template I found online and there were questions there I couldn’t answer. That might explain why there’s no writing going on.
More outlines. More, more more. There must be many more if I’m expecting to write 1667 words a day. At the end, I expect to be much, much better at outlines.
No, I’m not going to NaNo Lizardfic. That would be cheating. I’m writing something silly that will either be hilarious or awful, and if it’s bad enough I may never admit to it in public. That’s not the point, though. The point is overcoming the inner censor, learning how to outline, and having fun.
After NaNoWriMo, I may be doing NaNoFiMo. We’ll see.
