Status Update #1

You’re probably thinking something along the lines of “This is a blog about a novel. Where’s the novel?” Well, at the moment it doesn’t exist. That is to say, there isn’t anything titled “Chapter One” followed by any sort of coherent prose. Right now, the novel consists of:
-A printout of a character list, covered in random notes (the original file, by the way, was deleted in the Great Hard Drive Meltdown)
-Various other notes on character, plot (disclaimer: still subject to change), snippets of dialogue, backstory (SO MUCH BACKSTORY), possible sequels…
-The first draft of a world map - still needs to be expanded, refined, and colored
And that’s it! I’m planning on starting writing in earnest during this year’s NaNoWriMo, so by then I’ll have some more to report.
Tomorrow I’ll explain where the idea for the novel (and the blog) came from, and why I thought NaNo during senior fall would be a good idea :P
