As if I didn't have enough to do, I just signed up to write 50,000 words in November. I'm running through the last of my self-editing for Michal's Window. But I'm afraid I can't leave well enough alone. I have promised myself, no more plot changes, no more love scenes, no more mayhem, injuries, cat-fights, and deaths. And definitely no more wives for David nor handsome foreign men for Michal.
So I need an outlet, and I need to create, and I need NaNo now! Fortunately I have a plot and an alpha babe to write about. This babe is so alpha she thinks she's a male. She grew up with a troop of warriors, mercenaries, renegades, bandits, or outlaws. She's the chief's son, or so she thinks.
This story will be a challenge to choreograph. Five plot threads will be woven together. The heroine, the father, the lover boy, the abused widow, and da, da, da, da!!! The villain. Yes, I will finally have a real villain to work with. And he's going to be a bad ass, bad boy, bad, bad, bad.
I haven't decided on genre yet. I will let the story come out first. I've written the plot points for the five POV characters using Dan Well's simple 7 point structure: Hook, Plot Turn 1, Pinch 1, Midpoint, Pinch 2, Plot Turn 2, Resolution. His lecture can be found on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcmiqQ9NpPE
So, any of you doing NaNo? How ready are you?
