Brainstorming is generally the very beginnings of a novel for me. Sometimes I do it without even realizing it. Brainstorming is the part where I decide what kind of novel I want to write, or I start to figure out something slightly less generic. For instance, this year, I plan to write a superhero novel. I had a really awesome dream that gave me some good stuff to start with. But, generally, dreams need quite a bit of tweaking before they’ll actually make decent novels. Since dreams aren’t concerned about plot holes or complete impossibilities like the main character suddenly turning into Christopher Walken and then changing gender to become Angelina Jolie or something.

Based on the dream, I’m going to be writing a bit of a conspiracy theory novel. Since I think Nine Inch Nails (especially the last couple albums) makes for great conspiracy mood music, I’m going to brainstorm my plot stuff while listening to them. That way, the things I come up with for my novel will go great with my mood music. Which should make it easier and faster to write during November. Just to start with, I’ll probably brainstorm superpowers and things that groups of people would kill/kidnap in order to hide.

Hello, Everyone!

As writers we are constantly looking for new resources, challenges, and places to share our thoughts. And so we here at All Year would like to create a list of links that can serve as a resource for the members to look at and find useful things to help them with their writing.

If you have any links that you have found particularly useful in your writing process, be it a challenge community, website with prompts, or just another writing community that you feel has helped you as an author, we would like for you to give it to us.
At this point we are not looking for personal writing blogs, or personal websites, though we may create a post where everyone can post links to their personal sites later.


Writing Resources and Links )


The list that I have posted is by no means complete, it is just a list of websites from our old link post, as well as some suggestions that people have given to me personally. I will update this post with your links if you give them to me. :D
