22 days till NaNo2013. Already. That was quick.
I’m just beginning to figure out what I’m going to be writing about this year – Jessana’s story. I had more time to sort of figure out some elements of her story when I was doing F2K and she’s itching to go. I need to do this outlining thing right though before I begin.
A fellow NaNo-er who has her act more together than I do already has her outline done and also a 2500 word synopsis. My reaction is “EEEEPP!”
Time to get to work.
Update: I wrote an itsy-bitsy synopsis to get the ball rolling before I outlined my WIP:
“Jessana’s dead grandfather reappeared in her living room with a command that shatters her attempt at living the normal life she craves. She’s the next Manang, whether she wants to be or not because someone else wants all that power: her little sister.”
Next. A mood-altering playlist as per Maggie Stiefvater.
