My October Goals and NaNoWriMo 2016

Time is flying, it’s almost October and the most 2 important goals for October are getting ready for NaNoWriMo and help my cousin to start with an online GED prep course.

There’s a lot to do if I’m going to pull this off. I’m off to a good start. The second goal (working for the GED exam) is a well structured and plan. We intend to work daily for at least one hour using mostly the website Coccell.com, as all we need is there.

The NaNoWriMo prep is a different story. First, I had to pick a genre. Ideally, I would have chosen literary fiction, but who am I kidding?  I chose Chick it.  What I have in mind is not technically chick lit.  I’m not hip enough for real chick lit.  But, it’s definitely for chicks.

Then I had to come up with a story. Done. Next, character names and backstories know where I want to start and what happens in the end. I have several “scenes” that have to take place. Now I have to fill in the details.
