I've "won" once, way back in 2014 and I put that in quotes because the story that came out of that was 100% crap. OK, maybe 90% crap. 10% of it was acceptable.
I would like to go in this time with an idea (I have a basic one) and an outline (I am nowhere near even beginning that at the moment).
I need some structure!
I like structure - lists, index cards, something!
|Some of my actual index cards patiently awaiting my story ideas once I figure out how to organize them|
Without structure, I feel listless (no pun intended at first but then I went with it) and I think that's why my NaNoWriMo attempts start strong and then end up feeling like an out of control battery-operated scooter that is about to burst into flames.
So, I'm searching for some basic structure or outline that I can use to start organizing my thoughts.
It's already October 2nd so time is ticking down.
