I decided that I was going to try writing every single day in September, so I, of course, missed the second day. Oh, well. I wrote on and off for a while, then off for a couple of weeks. October wasn’t any better, but in my defense, October was filled with doctor visits and a scary trip to the emergency room (not for me) so I didn’t have as much time this month.
I was going to start over yet again, but then I saw an article on National Novel Writing Month and realized that it starts in a week in a half! I’ve never done it before, but I would like to try it this time. So instead of trying to write every day until then, I’m going to try and make a final decision on the plot of my story (which I have worked on over the last couple of months). It’s an ambitious task, especially for me, but I would really like to give it a try. Is anyone else going to be doing it? I really hope I can finish; an article on WritersDigest.com says that only about 14 out of 100 people finish.
I actually have two basic plot ideas now, so I have to decide which one to use. I would combine them into one story, but they aren’t at all compatible. The first is one that I’ve been thinking about for a while, but I don’t have much. It’s a fantasy book that is set in a setting like Lord of the Rings type fantasy books. The other idea is science fiction. I enjoy fantasy more, but this idea is more fleshed out. I think I’ll try to come up with more for the fantasy novel in the next couple of days, then, if I can’t come up with anything, I’ll just do the science fiction book. There are still some crucial things to decide for that novel, but I think I have enough to actually start writing.
I’m going to get going now and get started on my fantasy novel plot. Wish me luck!
