NaNoWriMo 2008 Planning

I think I know what I will write about during NaNoWriMo 2008. The basic premise is something I wanted to work on for many years, and I’ve never gotten around to actually doing it. I think my earliest notes reach back to, oh, probably 2002 or so. There’s not much there, but at least some of the basics are in place.

I’ll now have to work out the characters in greater detail, and work on the setting. I’ll also want to get started on outlining as soon as possible, unfortunately this week is totally crazy at work. As I type this, it’s 21:01, and I am about ready to fall asleep. Tomorrow… I hope. It does not bode well for November but I shan’t be discouraged this easily.

There is one more thing that I am, well, not worried about, but that may become a problem. The storyline I have in mind includes some things that I am not sure I can stomach. It would be rather ironic if I gave up in Mid-November because my villain is, well, too evil.

For now I’m not going to reveal more about my plans, except this: Of course it’s set in a parallel world. Everything I create is.

  1. Remember: you don't always have to describe what the evil villain does. Just establish that he's very evil and then simply allude to his evil acts…the human imagination will take over the rest and probably do a better job than a few words ever could.

    I haven't really figured out what I'm going to write for NaNoWriMo. I have this very detailed setting for it, I just haven't decided which story I want to bring out.

  2. Writing the evil deeds out or not doesn't make a big difference. It's still great evil that I will have to deal with and think about. And I am, at the core, really not a person who enjoys seeing others suffer. Even invented people.
