Up-coming event and out-lining

Oh my, last week was great. I had been called in for a interview and most likely got a job at one of my favorite art stores. I should be getting a call soon after the background check has finished, but in the mean while this week I am focusing solely on writing. Why?

National Novel Writing Month

This is an event dedicated for novel writing. The goal? 50,000 words in 30 days. Of course there isn't just one winner, everyone who finishes is deemed a winner. There are prizes of course and a chance to win a free novel cover. It's a great event and will be my third year doing this event. Not only is it helpful but its fun! Lots of kind, understanding people are willing to chat and help you. I've met some awesome people through it and hope to met more this year.

I'm a lot more organized this year though. I have a basic out-line (Which I'll talk about in a bit) and a firm plot with an ending all planned out. I originally did the same novel for last year but switched and rewrote my first novel instead. Now that I've fixed the glitches in the plot and redid the characters just a bit, I think I'm ready to get this bad boy going. I'm hoping for at least 70-80k. That's over the 50k. Even though I'll be working I still want to aim higher. I want to get this novel published to jump start my career. As well as start on my high fantasy/steampunk novel.

So that leads me into my next topic. Out-lining. I've mentioned out-lining before. It's important for me to stay organized while writing this novel. There are some pretty important twists that I need to remember in order to reveal them later on so I have to write them down. I normally use a simple out-line for writing out chapters. I've written this before but I'll write it again so no one has to dig through all my posts.

Pretty simple. Keeps me from ranting on and on and on.....oh you get the point. Anyway. I'll be posting another post when NANOWRIMO starts. Hope everyone is ready for it, it's going to be a blast.
