So I just noticed, much to my surprise and shock, that National Novel Writing Month is about two months away, and I have no plot. The feeling is a little strange, and a bit overwhelming. Normally I have a plot bunny that’s been itching for months.
Right now my writing itch is going in one of three directions:
- Be a rebel and write 50K more from last year’s novel
- Be a rebel and re-write my first year nano, which is an innsalvageable piece of crap. No amount of editing can redeem the story as it is. I may have to experiment a bit more with form to find the suitable way to tell the story I want to tell with that character.
- Expand on a writing prompt that I found a livejournal writing group. I don’t think I want to keep the stuff that I do have for it, so I could probably do that.
