Well, NaNoWriMo ended and I have officially failed at NaNo for the 5th year running. I had no time reason this year for the failure it is literally just hitting a wall due to not knowing where to take the story and not doing enough setup beforehand.
I think the stream of conciousness writing isn’t for me, not on that scale anyway. I had a start and an end in mind but no idea of how to get from one point to the other.
I need a chapter by chapter plan so that I know what is happening at each point of the story. Not too detailed but enough that I won’t stop dead not knowing where to go.
I am going to do this from now and then next year plan something ahead of time so it is flushed out and ready to write.
