Re: Rubik's Cube Plotting in 9 Easy Steps

I'll have to try this method, thanks. I might have to use several of these (as I tend to work with an episodic structure.)

Re: How long do you take to finish a draft/ WIP?

I think if I got my but in gear, I could get a chapter done in a week. And then that means most of the novel done in a month. Its just making myself write 1643 words a day that's tricky. That would mean 11 outlines.

Re: Official NaNoWriMo 2012 Thread

I guess that makes me a Nano rebel.D: I'm doing it to complete a collection of 11,500 word novellettes. And I'm still having to outline like crazy using writing software. I might also teach myself photography to, since I seem to write with pictures. Unfortunately not to many nuclear wastelands aroun...

Re: How many Characters do you have?

I don't know about last name, but I agree about how they should all have backstories. Uh, the question was for how many characters you should have, not whether they should have last names.

Re: How many Characters do you have?

Per 11,500 words, would 7 characters be considered to many? That might make 28 characters all around, but 7 main characters. I'm sort of in the profile writing part at this point, its sometimes hard writing a profile for more than seven characters.

Re: Does YA or Adult fiction,

Does YA or Adult fiction,

Generally tend to switch over mid book? I have a situation sort of, where the main girl is coping with loss without her guardian around mid novellette. (The second 5,750 words.) From that point it become sort of a military sf coming of age story. In fact by the first 5,750 words, the main boys mothe...

Re: Should queries,

I could always try to post it in Fantasy and Science fiction. By the way, is it weird for a short story to have a direct sequel(s)?

Re: How many Characters do you have?

Well like when my book is finally finished, its supposed to be around 142,000 words. But each story might have a separate cast of 7 or so characters. (That would make around 56 main characters.)
