How to Plan Your Own #NaNoWriMo Novel
By Rochelle Melander
If you are writing fiction, think like a god. Release all the energy of your imagination; create worlds and destroy them in your will, produce as many miracles as your narrative needs”
— Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity
So here we are, less than a week away from NaNoWriMo. The following last minute tools can help you to get prepared to write your book, if you have not had the time to prepare. Here is my guide to organizing a book quickly and quickly:
Start with tasty
List settings, characters, and your books. Mysteries are adored by me–my brain desires plots. When I could follow a intelligent detective into a 14, I am jazzed. What about you? List exactly what intrigues you.
Sketch out your thought
Undoubtedly you have some notion about what you want to compose in November. Jot down your thought, including target character, the genre, conflict, and placing.
Guru Suggestion: Write this as a log line that you are able to refer to during the entire month. Here is IMDB’s log line for The Wizard of Oz: Dorothy Gale is swept away into a magical land in a tornado and embarks on a quest to find the Wizard who can help her return home.
Expand characters and explore their aims
Assessing your characters may be the most significant part preparing to your writing experience. As F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Character is plot, plot is nature.” Consider:
Do your characters seem like?
What exactly are they curious about?
What do they love? What breaks your own heart?
What do they want? Why?
What is her core belief about herself?
What is his core belief about other people?
What is her fault that is crucial?
What or who gets into the way of her getting everything she needs?
Set the spectacle
Author Joseph Hansen said, “Set weather in.” Sue Grafton added, “Let’s sense that the sodden burden of a wall of water driven by winds gusting 60 miles an hour.” (By Writing Mysteries, edited by Sue Grafton, 49). Where does this story take place? What is the weather like? What sights, sounds, smells, and more will your characters experience? Describe the principal sets and generate a document, either within a journal or on a Pinterest board.
What might go wrong — fall in love, create a family and become a Ninja warrior — as your main personality sets out to accomplish her goal? List everything you can think about.
Summarize your narrative
Are you really a pantser or a plotter or mix platter? Then you may think plots are the function of the devil, delivered to create stories feel contrived and wooden if you are a pantser. You may wonder how a book is finished by anyone without a TripTik if you are a plotter. About developing a outline for people doing NaNoWriMo, think: what mysterious and strange things will happen as your personality seeks the secrets of her past and also his fortune? As Ray Bradbury wrote, “Plot isn’t any more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way into destinations that are incredible.”
