NaNoWriMo 2012: Prep

Protector by JaNese Dixon | NaNoWriMo 2012
Better late than never… At least that’s my story…and I’m sticking to it! NaNoWriMo 2012 starts in 2 days. I have been going back and forth as to what story I want to devote my time to. I’ve decided to write on a short story series tentatively titled: Protector.

I literally decided this morning. I had an interesting dream about the characters. I woke EXCITED!!! In that moment the decision was clear.

I have notes scribbled everywhere. I have research about the characters, settings, etc. However, I don’t have an outline. At least not a typical story outline–I like nice hefty outlines…LOL!

Thus, tomorrow I’m dedicating to working on my outline. I have a good idea of where I want to start and enough details to get me started. I’m confident I can go to sleep tomorrow reading for Day 1 of NaNoWriMo.

I plan to try our a technique I’ve wanted to use for a while: Storyboarding. I have created a template for my iPad and will use it tonight. Then tomorrow I will flesh it out and get my writing notebook setup.

I will blog tomorrow evening with an update. Whew!

Are you planning to participate? If so, are you ready?
