This is probably how I will be during NaNoWriMo.
Today was devoted to more plotting. I'm being very deliberate about my plotting for this next novel. This is a picture of James peeking over my plot board. Post it Heaven! Pink is for the heroine's POV scenes, Blue is for the Hero (Not very original, I know, but it works for me). Orange is the KABOOM moment in the book when all hope seems lost. Purple tiny post its are when my bad guy is in a scene. (Gotta track the bad guys.) And little yellow notes are the places where I don't have something figured out yet. They have single questions on them like "Setting?" and "Sabotage?"
And for CJ, that is your IM window on the laptop. :)
Using this plot board, I was able to write a 4K word six page chapter-by-chapter synopsis of the book. Yay! Actual writing. It felt so good today to get back to writing. It's been far too long.
On another happy note, this is a picture of me signing my very first book contract. :D
