 I'm drowning in research. I have most of the main characters fleshed out, fully outlined first act, fuzzy second and pretty developed setting. First couple of chapters are bouncing up and down in my head causing restlessness and occasional headache. But I still need to fully outline second and third act - or I'll dump NaNoWriMo again, I know, - minor chars, factions, history, political system, other background things that make story believable. Looks like I'd not be able to sit and actually write until November. Will it be funny if I find myself with great story and without any writing skill?
toi: (NaNoWriMo)
Received a message about NaNoWriMo preparation today. I didn't do any previous work on my "novel" last year. Maybe that's why I've quit after first 17 000 words. Pathetic result, so I'm going to do an awful lot of preparation this year and hope it'll work. Trying to write an outline now.

Step 1. One-sentence description:
"Hired detective follows missing girl's steps but supposedly simple case turns out much more mysterious and dangerous than he expected."

P.S. In desperate need of new mood theme. SPN, Doctor, Sherlock or good old Red Dwarf? Oh, tough choice.
