sdjalana: (nanowrimo 2008)
[personal profile] sdjalana
Had some downtime during work today, so I began plotting out my novel for Nanowrimo.  I had a semi-brilliant idea about a month back, but as I went over it today, it seemed a bit too much like a knock-off of a Star Trek episode (in fact, that may have been where my semi-brilliant idea originated from).  So rather than outlining the story, I sat down and restructured the entire thing.  Very glad I did as the idea is turning out to be pretty exciting, if I do say so myself. 

I am a bit worried, though--I tend to plan these great, big, grandiose storylines that fall apart when I start the actual writing.  (One thing I definitely need to keep in mind: no deus ex machina, EVAR!!!)  And added to all this is the fact that this story will be featuring physics and the military, one of which I absolutely hate and the other of which I know nothing about (I'll let you decide which is which).  So that means lots and lots of research before I start writing.  Can it really be the end of October already???  Sheesh.

Upside is, I have a pretty firm grasp on my main character, and I think my supporting cast is coming together nicely also.  Now all I have to do (other than put together a fitting playlist) is actually figure out what happens in this story...  Zoinks.
