This is the first year I’ve committed to NaNoWriMo. I’m really going to do this, but it is turning out to be much more of a challenge than I thought. And it’s only Day 7.
This is my problem: The plot of my novel is eluding me. Plot is, arguably, the most important aspect of a novel. Several times I thought I had it nailed down, only to discover I had many exciting plot twists (i.e. – “The villain is actually your MOM” and “That guy is actually your BROTHER”) but not an actual plot.
Yes, I should have worked this out during the month of October so I was ready to go come November 1. Unfortunately, that ship has sailed.
I know I’m close. Know the feeling? Here’s what I have rounded up in regard to plot:
Hope this helps!
