About NaNoWriMo: One way to begin

November 28, 2011

It’s probably too late to get involved in it now (two days left) unless you are a very fast writer and more organized than most of us.

Should you be so inclined (and I heartily endorse the idea for 2012) it helps to have (1) a fairly good idea what your novel is–where it begins and ends, who the main characters are, and what it is that happens to them during the course of the work. And a passion for discovering everything that might lie in between.

I knew who Francis and Sophy were, when they lived and how they related (or did not) to each other. All the rest is discovery, and fiction.

And what a treat it was, to read that book for the very first time, as I was writing it.
