Happy November everyone! I had really hoped to be announcing my success with book 2. Alas, life’s activities kept creeping in, and my visions for last few scenes never solidified. I did make major progress, though, and I overcame a mega scene hurdle that had me stuck for months. Woot! Now, all I have left are three chapters I have to work through, and then I’ll be able to tackle another set of problems concerning one POV’s flow. His chapters don’t fit with the other three until they intersect like at 75%, so it’s not a seamless transition and it’s giving me trouble. I’m not sure how I’ll handle it just yet. But my main goal is finishing these last three chapters before the end of the year. I think I can do that. *crosses fingers*
IWSG Question of the Month – November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?
I have multiple times, and I’ve won multiple times, but dang has it caused a mess in the book that I’ve been trying to detangle for the past decade. I’d taken the pants route with NaNo, throwing in earth quakes and monster attacks whenever I hit a road block. I’d actually written most of the POV I now have to fix during NaNo events, and I think that’s part of the problem.
Have you ever done NaNoWriMo? Do you ever write multiple POVs with different subplots? How do you get them to flow nicely?
