Camp NaNoWriMo April 2023

Camp NaNoWriMo Prep Week Day One

Today is the first day of actual work on the novel. I haven’t started writing yet of course, but I really put in some good hours yesterday in getting my system set up and ready. This evening I need to start plotting. I am chafing against the idea that romantic books need to follow the very formulaic pattern established by what is hot on TikTok. Maybe at the end of this, it isn’t really a romance novel, it is fiction that has sex and love in it. We’ll see. I just want there to be more than boy meets girl> boy and girl flounder until they fall in love happy ending. Escapism? yes. Overblown dramatic overture of love? Absolutely. Steamy Spicy scenes you’ll be embarrassed to tell your best friend about. 1000% but these characters as I have come to know them deserve more than that. There is longing and pining that I think a lot of friends to lover books use for comedy, that deserves an examination.

My Goals For This Evening.

  1. Get all the lingering bits and pieces from Notion to Storyist.
  2. Start looking at the first act plot structure
  3. Get my writers notebook TN insert numbered and get my NaNoWriMo spread made

I’ll check in with you all tomorrow to see how far I got.

Are you plotting or pantsing your novel? Let me know in the comments
