Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Oct 262015

October (and our Alien: Isolation giveaway) is almost over. That means it’s almost time for NaNoWriMo.

And I have no idea what I’m doing.

Unlike last year, when I had solid plans for The Nightbringer and couldn’t wait for NaNoWriMo to begin, I haven’t given it much thought this year. I’ve been too focused on other writing projects… and now it’s almost here.

I do have one thing, though: a MAP!

I made this map during Maria V. Snyder‘s Map Quest module at my June 2015 Writing Popular Fiction residency. At the time, I was excited, because I had a great idea for a story. My only regret was how many other stories would take precedence before I could work on it.

Well, I forgot the story idea, although I think it involved an imperial elven army and Lovecraftian horrors. So I have no plot, no characters, and no plan.

But I have a map!

NaNoWriMo 2015 might be a struggle, but maybe November will bring new inspiration. If you’re participating, what are your NaNoWriMo plans this year?

  1. Reminder that you apparently forgot about NaNoWriMo until I reminded you like a week ago.

    As usual, no plans. 😮
