I scoured the internet...okay...I typed a few things into google and gave up. But I couldn't find if there were any official terms for September in the NaNoverse, so I'm dubbing my September as "Plotember". This pantser right here has been struggling with plotting and I'm going to change that this year. My goal is to have a basic, really really basic, outline of the major plot points, scenes, and the ending, along with the theme of the book done ahead of time.
Okay, soooooo my goal is to have it done today. Yeah. I'm on deadline. What better reason to be online typing up a blog post, am I right?
I am working on a story that needs to tap out at the 30k words range, but I know myself and I want to "win" NaNo. So during my Plotember I'm not only going to fiddle with the plot I WILL finish up today, but also work out another story plot to keep me busy after I hit my first "The End" of the month.
And because I always seem to do better when I pile more things on my plate, I thought I'd add in an IG photo challenge.
I'm following along and playing too, because I want something to keep my eye on the prize this year.
Are you already thinking about NaNoWriMo? Or are you cursing me reminding you how close this challenge and the holidays are?
I'm personally getting excited for Halloween and the pop up costume stores that have already started sneaking into my town, that may or may not have a feature in my project.
If you're playing along with NaNoWriMo's photo challenge, let me know so I can follow you. And if you want to follow me on Instagram, just search for @RoxyMews. I'll be (attempting to) post pictures all month. First challenge is a selfie. Anyone who follows me knows I've got that one in the bag.
Let's get ready to kick Plotember's ass, and be ahead of schedule for Preptober. First things first...I need to log off and figure out how my story ends!
