This year I am not flying by my seat. I am outlining. This is a new thing for me, I like not knowing where my story is going, however, this year my story is a little complicated and I need some structure.
I have created my outline on colored index cards. So far I have 23 chapters and 4 parts. I've done as much research as time allow. I am sure I will have to do more during Nanowrimo, because I am going back to 1962.
I honestly don't know how writers write Historical Fiction. The research that must go into it boggles my mind. I'm only going back 50 years and I have more information than I ever thought I would need. However, to be reliable, I have to have my facts right. I don't mind doing the research, but time is running out. Next Thursday is T-30.
If the storm prevents me from going to work, I will spend much of the day researching.
I wish everyone who is participating this year the best of luck. 50K here I come.
