National Novel Writing Month
I think I'm nuts for starting this when I have classes going on, but I also think it'll be the kind of discipline I need. Whether I feel like doing so or not, I'll have sit down and type an average of just over 1600 words per day. Which is do-able. But making sure they form a coherent story, making sure that the work won't be wasted... that'll be the interesting part.
And while I do have the idea for a story - a sub-urban fantasy - I still don't have a grip on the protagonist's and antagonist's personalities. The secondary characters are very vivid, but not the main ones. Go figure. I think I'll take an hour tonight to jot down some notes, and then hit the ground running tomorrow.
If you're taking part in NaNo, what's your last-minute pre-launch preparation like?
