NaNoWriMo Prep: What Do I Write About?

So like every writer, ideas pop into my head at any given moment. I have been driving my car, a thought pops in my head and bam I am scrambling for a pen to jot it down. Ideas also pop in when I am in the throes of writing others novels and doing my homework.

Thus, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is almost upon me and I find myself reviewing sticky notes, Word document blurbs, Evernote, and random scribbling searching for the best of the best.

I spent Sunday afternoon reviewing my notes. It was AWESOME. I read all of these great ideas and reintroduced myself into these worlds I created. After one pass, I cleaned the house a little to see what stayed with me. If a story does not stay with you at this point, there is no need trying to dedicate a month to writing about it. Next, I narrowed it down to a top 3. These were ideas that I felt were my strongest contenders and they were a very colorful bunch. After writing little blurbs about these ideas, I sent them away to those whose feedback I treasured and asked what stood out to them. From there, I slept on the feedback and woke up knowing what was going to be my November project.

I am super excited about Nanowrimo and the story I have chosen to delve into. It was a choice between a mystery and something undefined – of course I chose the undefined one. It will be such a welcome challenge – the ideas will not let me breathe and I love when stories start like that!
