Tell me a bit about your experience with Nano so far:
I started participating in NaNoWriMo the November of 2010, though I didn’t start to really get into it until last year. Not only was 2012 my first win, but it was also the first time I really sat down to write something of my own and discovered how much I loved it. The other thing I discovered this past year was Camp NaNoWriMo (though how I missed those two months I’ll never know). I participated in both and somehow ended up with over 100k each time. I now have two nearly completed first-drafts (one missing an ‘epic’ battle scene and the other a decent ending) and that’s more than I ever could have imagined writing before taking part in NaNoWrimo.
What are you writing about this year?
This year I’m planning to write a ‘whimsical’ dark fantasy, something you would expect of a darker Alice in Wonderland. It’s going to be a seduction to the dark side and a statement on how things aren’t always as they seem or as simple as ‘good’ and ‘bad’. This is the premise I have so far:
A young woman is drawn into a world that is more black than white, but soon finds that everything may just be varying shades of grey. With no clear lines drawn, what choices will she make?
And sadly that’s about all I have. Now if I can stop the other plot bunnies long enough to get my planning done this month, I’ll be happy!
Who’s the best character in your Nano novel?
