It’s the 1st November. Oh dear.
In other news, I’m really feeling the first week of November buzz. Exciting new stories, new characters, new locales, dramatic irony… Tasty stuff, loyal reader. I hope I’ll quickly come to know my characters. They’re the ones who’ll drag me through this (almost as pay back for me dragging them through the plot!)
In the wake of 1st of November fever, my choice of serial fiction over the regular novel seems to be working for the moment. By the time I get bored of a particular story the next episode is peeking on the horizon, like some tantalising … thing. Of course I foresee problems with this approach, but then that’s what I tend to do. Perhaps I’m setting this project up to fail, the short format teasing me with the opportunity to skimp on the detail (and we all know that in NaNoLand, excruciating detail is king).
We shall see. I still have 29 days left… right?
