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.

NANO WORKSHOP TONIGHT!

When?: 8-11pm EST
Where?: NanoPlotting on AIM
Host?: JupiterSings86

With NaNo only 25 days away now is as good a time as ever to start preparing... or at least hang out with some other writers and pretend to prepare! Tonight I will be hosting a chatroom on AIM to discuss NaNo, Plots, Characters, and anything else you may want to brush on.
As the month progresses each week will have one of these Plot rooms, so if you can't make it this week feel free to come another time.
Don't have/use aim? (Kind of weird here since the group is AIM based...) That's okay! I'll be posting a help/ question thread on [livejournal.com profile] nanowrimo the following day after every workshop for the people who couldn't make it in.

Do you hear that noise? It's seconds ticking by until Nano. Every letter I type is one moment closer to the big day where we all willingly commit ourselves to the NaNo Asylum. Anyone else jazzed?

How is your plotting going? Are you loving your characters yet? Do you think that you quite possibly have the greatest universe created since JR Tolkien himself? Go you.

Or maybe you're like me, you have the plot and characters down, but you're still unsure of exactly where to go.

Or maybe you're like my friend, who doesn't have a single character or a single plot, but is ready for NaNo to start anyway.

You're not alone. No matter what stage in the planning process you're in. And today we're going to prove that.

I'm going to list all the "common" genres of writing below and if you're planning on doing that genre for NaNo - be it original fiction or fanfiction, just reply with your name and whatever you want. If you have questions that you'd love to pick the brain of people who write that genre, post them below it! Let's get some awesome discussion going and really support each other through this planning time!

Nano '10 is going to the best!

I will be posting the schedule for sprints this week later tonight at, but before then I would like to announce something somewhat new that I will be doing during the Month of October to prepare for NaNo!


Every Sunday in place of normal sprints, I will be hosting an plotting sessions at the times listed below. During these "sprints" rather than focus more on word count and current writing, we will be brainstorming, coming up with ideas, and trying to get the ball rolling to prepare for NaNo.

The room name will be NaNoPlotting, and if you have any questions feel free to send a message to JupiterSings86 on AIM.


So, to make it easier:

What is it?: Plotting Sprints
