National Novel Writing Month

The countdown is on for a great mass project that starts tomorrow (http://www.nanowrimo.org/en).  NaNoWriMo i’s a wonderful concept, one I imagine a writer gets as much out of as she/he puts into it.  To Do list:

  • Choose a genre: Sci-fi, comedy, drama? Definitely not paranormal romance — that is out! Don’t jump on the vampire/faith-based fiction/zombie love story bandwagon. On second thought, maybe that would be the perfect combo!
  • The characters: Gotta love a strong female. Following the Bechdel test (http://bechdeltest.com/),
    1. It has to have at least two women in it
    2. Who talk to each other
    3. About something besides a man

    Hmmm.

  • Premise: Not too far-fetched, somewhat believable story of a likable enough protagonist named ________ who {add verbs here}.  (Oh no, it’s turning into a Mad Lib!)
