I'm ready to start a new novel. It's going to be about three generations of Black giants.
I want the story to skip in time-a big no-no for a beginning writer. I want the story to be mostly about family dynamics and less about plot---a giant no-no. Okay maybe I'll come up with an interesting plot so that I can move the story forward. I'm not good enough to write a story that doesn't have an obvious plot… but dude, I can dream.
I'm going to put myself out there and say I'm an expert at plot thanks to COAL. I can move a story along with the big dogs. Yeah I said it. So while I'm outlining GIANTS, I'm not just going to outline plot like I did with COAL. I'm going to have the setting and description details in the outline also. That way I don't have to go back and do it on the second draft. Editing sucks and I want to eventually get to the point where my first drafts are pretty clean.
I can't wait for NaNoWriMo so that I can get all this started. :squee:: but first I gotta get COAL done, so back to work.
