A little over a week before Nanowrimo 2014 starts and my preps are not that organised.
I mean I have my idea and my character all in my head but I find it hard to put it down in an actual written format ready to be used on Day One.
The Planner in me is freaking out.
The Adventurer in me is shrugging it off…
Both attitudes are currently in conflict and I am at a stand still. Will I get to plan or will I pants it?
According to Larry Brooks, who wrote a whole series of tips to prep for Nano, I should already have a developed concept, character sheets and beat points…
Many other previous Nanoers seem to have the same advice.
I just don’t know how to do that in a workable manner. Ideas, snippets and scenes are floating in my overloaded brain and I just hope I’ll be able to channel them come the 1st November.
As I am also naturally fickle, I find it hard to commit to one story line development, the way making a plan would push me. So I guess I have decided to pants it to some extent. At this stage, I think I just want to fumble my way through this first time.
Wish me luck and hopefully, I won’t change my mind too often…
