I’m in central NJ, and Sandy’s heavy winds and rains are just really beginning here. Schools are closed, roads are flooded, people are being advised to stay in doors.
It makes me wonder how many NaNoWriMo novels will contain some sort of severe storm this year? I wonder how many people already have their novels planned out and how many are going to incorporate some recent weather events into their still-developing plots.
I’ve been thinking and thinking about how a storm like this will fit into my current plot outline…but I don’t think it will. Instead, I might go ahead and write a short story containing a severe storm like this, instead. (That should keep me occupied for the rest of the day, anyway.)
Getting ready to begin, and thinking I might want a calendar of some sort to help me keep track of my progress through NaNoWriMo, I went looking for a good one online. I came across this one by Monda@NoTelling, and can’t wait to start using it.
2 more days to go…the novel wants out!
