Just a quick note about what’s coming now that NaNoWriMo 2007 is almost finished. (Okay, so I haven’t quite finished my novel rough draft — 4 more chapters –but I broke the 50K and have a few paragraphs roughing the last 4 chapters.)
I’ve published the first of many resource and writer’s tools postings to come. I figured at least a few NaNoWriMo participants would be starting to think about agents, so I pushed through the excellent information provided by Lisa Preston. I’ve also got some excellent information on queries collected at Edmond’s Write on the Sound Conference in October. I’ll try to get that up by next week.
I have several wonderful guidelines from author Janice MacDonald on the structure of a commercial fiction plot as seen from many different angles and approaches. I’ll be working that up and posting the information throughout December.
Additionally, I’ve been developing and collecting some worksheets for various elements of a novel that might be useful in both planning and editing. And not so finally, I’m going to start a category for Washington State writer’s groups. There are a number of people in Seattle looking to form ongoing writing groups to help them get their editing done on their NaNoWriMo projects. If you have or no of a writing group in Washington state, please drop me a line or leave a comment and I’ll add them to the listing.
