Hi all! Welcome to your count down NaNoWriMo prepping session hosted by the lovelies of #WriteRoom. The goal of this is to provide some aid in making sense of your probably best-seller idea for this year’s event. The sequence of events will be as follow:

Oct. 10: The elephant of the room: The Plot

A story without a plot is, well, some alien literary form that does not pertain to our venture. Today we have one mission: decide what the main and leading conflict is as to maintain a somewhat fluid set of events. Within the madness of your wonder ride, there must be some consistency, and that is provided by the plot.

Oct. 17: Where the heck is this? World Building 101

The setting can be as simple as a single room throughout the story, or as complex as the world of Westeros or Middle Earth. Whatever you decide, the setting must be established early on right after the plot. Knowing your story’s surrounding may ease the development of the story, and it could even provide the necessary twist and elements to keep the characters going. Also, knowing the location of the action may prevent in later discrepancies that are so nasty to deal with in the editing process.

Oct. 24: Starring… who? Character Creation

I don’t yet know of a story that did not have a character. They could be nameless, shapeless, even just a voice we never see, but they must be present, because everything must be seen and filtered through someone! Forget Mary Sues, today we will flesh out the next Nick Carraway and Ishmael, the Bellatrix and the Katniss that will move your story forward.

Oct. 31: This is it! What’s missing?

Being the day before the one and only NaNoWriMo, all we have left if the remaining miscellaneous details what will help tie the possible loose ends we may not have dealt with yet. Will you write in chapters or straight? Still don’t know the last name of your main character? Who is the main character? All those little dots that are missing will be taken care of today, as well as the physical and mental and emotional preparation: food, check; comfy chair, check, sanity… erm, let’s move on!

As we all have a life away from our chat homes, the meetings will begin roughly 9PM EST and on.
And as a neat-o treat, at the stroke of midnight, the roof’s going to get of fire with the very first round of Word Wars to get the boilers going, welcoming November the 1st!

It would be nice to know of the rules. I would strongly suggest posting some rules about what gets accepted and what doesn't. That way I don't waste my 5 submission a week limit on something that can't get in.
