Nano nano everywhere
So, this year's Nano wasn't the greatest thing I've ever written. It wasn't terrible - it just wasn't a great novel.
It did prompt me to look up some of my older manuscripts, though, and the one from 2007 - Today is not a day for heroes - is worth salvaging. The last two chapters are very condensed and could probably be at least another five chapters. When I write a Nanonovel, I like to tell the whole story even if that means chopping bits out. So, task one for December is to do some work on that manuscript - tidy up the typos, expand the last two chapters. But maybe I can take the whole thing further, really go in depth? Let's start with the tidy up, though.
The other thing I want to try is doing the little prompts and competitions over at Writing.com with a set of characters I'm developing for next year's Nano (you can never start too early!). I'm planning a gothic novel of amazing proportions, so watch this space.
