In about a month, the insanity that is known as National Writing Month will being. As such, most of us who are planning to participate in it this year have already begun planning our stories.
While it is against the rules to write one word of the novel before November 1st, there are no rules about planning for it, and it is, in fact, something that is held in high regard and pushed for.
In this vein, I hope to bring you a new series every Monday for the next month regarding different aspects about how to plan writing a novel. I’ll use real life experiences from my own time noveling, as well as put feelers out to other authors and NaNoers on how they prepare for the task at hand: writing something you want to write.
Please let me know if there are any topics you would like covered in this series. I’ll be happy to do research about and write about anything that is suggested.
