Right now I am gearing up for my first ever attempt at NanoWriMo with my new project, 'Archangel.' This novel is not going to be a horror story, surprisingly enough. I guess you could say it would fit into the techno-thriller category.
With six days to go I'm nervous but I'm sure I'll be fine.
My strategy is simple. I won't be focusing on a rigid structure, I'll just be pouring everything into it and can fix it up later. There are some scenes that I have more than one idea on so I plan on putting all the ideas into the story to aid in my word count. Then hopefully by the end of November I will have a lump of workable clay I can mould into something publishable - even if it takes a year, at least I would have written a novel in 31 days.
Wish me luck.
BTW, Matthew Reilly's latest novel 'The Five Greatest Warriors' is awesome! I picked up my copy on Tuesday and finished it Thursday. go out and grab it!
