Or, as I call it, the “preliminary block” phase.
Gods, if it weren’t difficult before, I’m certainly getting there now.
I got the storyline down somewhere at the end of Week 1. I like the story; it may expand a little further, develop the subplots some more at a later time, and I definitely need to inset a few kicking-ass scenes there, but it can happen at a different time. This is taking shape to be more of a mix of neo-political, in addition to the usual high-flying action my books are rife with, and while I desperately wish I could watch some Law & Order for inspiration, my time home is limited, and my to-do list is overwhelming.
But! The plot is there. While it’s in bits and pieces in my head, it exists. Which gives me hope.
In non-NaNo news, I got my good camera at last!! Now to get it a decent lens and a 16GB SDHC card. People, order some graphic design from me!!!! Commemorative orders welcome. I want to earn something for my photography supplies here!
Oh, and have a widget.
It’s coming along… :)
