This is my first day of NaNoWrMo. I finished 2032 words of a new novel. The challenge is to continue at this pace for the next 25 to 29 days. I started writing and found myself comfortable to go beyond my goal of 1700 words.
Today was easy by my standards because I used The Story Toolkit written by Susan Bischoff to create an outline. Kait Nolan recommended it in her blog http://kaitnolan.com/2016/10/04/the-story-toolkit/. I bought it and the workbook. This gave me access to the pdf version of the workbook. I downloaded and printed a copy.
I haven’t filled in all 65 pages I printed but enough to know the plot points, the pinch points, the climax and denouement. I may not create a scenes list or the cast of characters pages since I am writing the book as the challenge.
I recommend The Story Toolkit for anyone thinking of writing a novel.
