And so it begins… (2019)

I am not sure if there will be a knight in my Nanowrimo story but I do know one thing there will be a battle. Hopefully a battle in the story and not a battle of me staring at a blank screen and not knowing what to write.

I have often heard how important planning is for a novel. I find that impossible. I don’t feel I can visualise where things are until they are there. Does that make sense? No. The answer is no.

To it is like going for a walk but having to imagine the walk first. Then you write down a sequence and try to follow just that sequence. So rather than having a map you just have a piece of paper that says: left, right, left, left, right, and so on and so on.

So instead of a plan I am going to just start. I am on 2904 words (total) at the moment and have 2096 words to go to get me on track. I want to smash through that and finish this week, which I am off work for, far above the 11,667 target for the fist week. At least that is the plan. Now, if you’ll excuse, I need to get back to it. Toodles.

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.

I have a Patreon page. I hope you will consider supporting this blog: https://www.patreon.com/unstableorbit
