Maybe that’s what the month of October is for. I don’t read the propaganda around NaNoWriMo so maybe it is.
Why NaNoWriMo Is Not For Me.

That always got to me. What am I going to write about?!

Maybe you’re right! Maybe October is for developing characters and outlining.

I even tried adapting a musical play I’ve been tinkering with for years into a novel since I already knew the characters, and the story. That didn’t go well.

I think the 90 day novel (book) is a better help, and more motivational than NANOWRIMO.
