…and I haven’t gotten as far in my planning as I hoped. I’ve outlined four scenes, and if I try hard enough, that should get me at least a week’s worth of word count once November 1 comes. I want to try to outline 15 scenes or so, so the characters have enough to go on when they eventually take over the story. I did manage to write a synopsis of my story for the NaNo site, and this is it:
The cover image has nothing to do with the story (yet). It’s just a random road sign I decided to photograph while I was in Tennessee several years back. And from reading the synopsis, the title has nothing to do with the story because I’m not exactly sure how to bring Eliza into it (yet).
I’ve long considered writing synopses of unwritten novels to be a form of procrastination from actually writing the novel (or planning for the novel), so I’m going to stop right here and get back to work on my outline!
How’s your NaNo planning going?
