Slowly moving towards November

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 27, 2014, 4:52 PM


I've noticed my biggest trouble with Nano comes with world creation and character interaction. I get in the middle of a novel and suddenly realize I have no idea what I'm doing or why my characters won't listen to me. This year, I'm trying something different, and so far it seems to be helping me sort out my characters.

I've taken a prompt list and pasted it into a new document. Since I'm the most indecisive person on the planet (or thereabouts) I've also bookmarked this number generator: www.mathgoodies.com/calculator…
Whatever number is generated is the prompt I use. I spend fifteen to thirty minutes writing about just my characters and how they interact with each other.

My depression has been a massive obstacle this month to doing just about everything, so I'm very surprised and  pleased this has worked. So far (this month), I'm at 11000 words for just character exploration. I haven't been able to read much of anything this month either, so hopefully I'll be able to make a dent in my inbox soon. Would like to do another feature too.

In other news, I loved the new Doctor Who episode with Peter Capaldi.I know a lot of people hated it, but I was incredibly impressed.

Hi! So, I was cheking out your profile (I'm finally catching up on FFM--I'm doing your challenge now)
And I saw your 'And then Buffy Staked Edward. The end.'  and I love it! Plus, if you like the movie Labyrinth, you are automatically in the Awesome Club.
