Where's The Plot?

So, if you're afraid that this blog might be all nano all of the time until December 1st, you are probably right.  Then it will be all puppy (we get Libby on December 1st), all of the time.

So, feel free to pop back in with me in the new year where I can only hope I have a little more depth in my conversation.  In the meantime, I am having trouble plotting.

I keep doing a Homer Simpson.  You know how his mind wanders into far off places, sometimes frozen ones?  Yeah, that's what I'm doing.  How about a puppy pic to break up all of the writing?

So now I'm looking for suggestions.  With one week left before the actual writing starts, what would you like to see in my story?  There will be a quest to figure out who the main character's real father is, and a race to find a missing gem.  That's all I've got so far but I am interested in hearing any ideas.  :)

Seriously, lay 'em on me.  And another gratuitous puppy pic.

Do You Nano?

It's October 23rd and I am starting to get downright itchy about starting Nanowrimo next week.  Not familiar? It is short for National Novel Writing Month, and it is both a thrilling and frightening month-long quest for 50,000 words.

Have you ever wanted to write a novel but just didn't get around to doing it?  This might be the perfect blend of competition and comraderie that you need to give it a go.

If you do decide to sign up for nanowrimo (it's free), do let me know so I can get out my pompoms and cheer you on.  I'll post a widget up in the corner so you can watch my progress throughout November.
