NaNoWriMo Prep – Outlines

Preparation for NaNoWriMo 2017 is still underway. With only 19 days left to D-Day (or should it be N-Day?) I am rather panicked about getting everything done in time. I have started my chapter outlines in earnest today.

I have an Excel spreadsheet to fill out, listing opening scenes, main events and closing scenes. Once I have this basic information planned out I hope to expand on each chapter in Word documents, adding more and more information to each.

With any luck this will make actually writing the story much easier. If I have a solid outline in place I will at least know where I am going with the thing. At the moment I just have the last chapter completely thought out, but I need a lot more than that to make a story.

How is your prep going?

I realised when I last posted about NaNoWriMo I never actually linked to their website. Go check it out! NaNoWriMo
