If not, here's a short checklist:
- What type of novel are you writing - paranormal, chick lit, suspense etc?
- Do you know your characters? And not just their names but an idea of who they are as people, their backgrounds, their goals etc.
- Where is your novel set?
- What are the major conflicts that will keep your hero and heroine apart?
I highly recommend that in the next three days you clear your desk, do your filing, clear out the cupboards, and get that spring cleaning done. Finish any task that you might grab as an excuse not to write during November.
There are kick-off meets around the country this week-end, so if you want to join in and meet like-minded people and get inspired, take a look at the calendar at http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/node%252F259. If you're in Jo'burg I look forward to meeting you at the Mugg & Bean in Melville on Sunday.
