Prep Work

11 Oct

So, NaNoWriMo is around the corner. Just a few more weeks, in fact. Do you know what you’re going to write?

I have a vague idea as to what I’m writing with a cast of great characters (some that still need names, actually). It’s fantasy-ish, of course, and there’ll probably be dragons because why not?

Anyways, as the lot of you may know, I’m quite a pantser when it comes to writing. Meaning, I don’t do too well with outlines or planning too much ahead in my stories. I’m usually lucky if I have a clear ending in mind rather than just a muddled picture. I focus a lot on characters and their development, and they’re usually pretty good sports about pointing me in the right direction as I type away at their stories.

Out of curiosity, though, any of you plotters out there have some simple outlining tips? How do you make sure you stay on course with your stories, especially during the fast-paced, no-backspace month of NaNoWriMo?

    I know what I’m going to write. I’m working on two already-started novels. The first is typed and I plan on coming up with an outline this month. The other is completely outlined, but I’m hand-writing it.
