NaNoWriMo ’09

https://i1.wp.com/www.nanowrimo.org/NanowrimoUtils/MyMonth/78313.pngIt’s another November, and I am going to do my best to use this spot to post chapters, and maybe write additional things about what I have been doing to prepare or actually work towards my goals in November.

I haven’t explored, but I wished there was a way to make “ninja posts” as I call them – setting up the date to make things precede what I have already posted.   I took a few pics (blurred) to show how I was getting ready for NaNo this time around.

There was a conscious choice made to aim for an actual thirty chapter structure (which works out well as far as the breakdown by days).  The other idea is to have a revolving first-person point of view between the five men who experience the events of the story.  For the first draft, I’ll refrain from using the name of the characters when they are speaking in the chapter: not saying “This is so-and-so”.

I’ll break this down by chapters instead of the giant novel block I posted before.  If you have any critiques, I’ll appreciate it.  I won’t try to edit until  NaNoWriMo is over and when I have completed this.  The reason I decided to use the thirty chapter setup was for the idea of finishing the novel; which hopefully forces the issue.

All feedback is appreciated.  Please stay constructive,  but I can certainly take the heat.  😉
