So, I believe I said that I wouldn't be doing NaNoWriMo this year, and that for the most part remains true. I'm roaring towards the end of Theatre but we won't arrive at the magical words (you know what they are) until the days left until November are none. However, I will be participating in NaNo in my own rebellious way. I believe there are a few other rebels out there - shakes her pom poms at them.
I'm hoping to spend about an hour a day in November working on Grim Glass Vein, being away from the book means it's lost a little of its spark but hopefully good old Bonfire Night will reignite the fire. Shakes head in disbelief at that last line - feel free to leave the blog now. But for the most part November will be about worldbuilding. I had an idea for a most wonderful character a couple of weeks ago and she won't leave me alone. Victoria (name subject to change) wants to live in a steampunkish world only the writer doesn't know much about steampunk and the world so far consists of a pair of stockings, some insects and a tower. November shall be devoted to building said world and to deciding whether to use it to weave some short stories from in 2010 or to mark it down as my next novel project.
So what else will I be doing in November. Cheerleading of course. Hence the above sporty picture. Any November blog posts will have a special Cate's Cheerless Crypt with a selection of prompt words, pictures and other nonsense that might help you move that little old plot along if you be stuck.
