“If it works, go for it,” became this year’s motto for uncovering my central idea for NaNoWriMo 2009. I fretted over the past five days about how “late” I was in getting an idea for my story. Kender and I brainstormed some ideas last night, and after awhile, our session devolved into discussing and me writing up an scenario I had for our D&D campaign. Today I spent hours scanning the NaNo forums, as well as my old Scrivener files for past rejected ideas. In that slush pile, I found an idea. And a rudimentary liking and shape took hold in my mind.
Admiring the forum banners, I stumbled across one that had a design and theme that resonated in me. So out comes Photoshop and my digital crafty side took over. By the time kender arrived home I had started files for a Dust Cover (for my author’s bio page), and a Desktop graphic. About an hour ago, I finished the designs on all three.
Ladies and Gents… I’d like to present this year’s idea:
Now all I need is to develop that idea into a REAL plot and maybe get a rudimentary outline ready by November 1st. Any out there want to talk plot shop?
