Plotting and Reading

Things to think of when I’m working on NaNoWriMo 2018:

  • I need to world build. It will be in the US, but it will be it’s own city.
  • I need to figure out what types of supernaturals I want in my world. The duhs are shifters, vampires, witches, and such. But I want to go further. I love the idea of all other types as well.
  • I need to get more ideas as well. Right now I am just super inspired!

I’ve currently been reading the Nocturne Falls Universe series, after reading the original series by Kristen Painter. It’s seriously some good stories!

Dragons, Vampires, shifters (of all sorts), Reaper (yes, that type of Reaper), Genie, witches, even gargoyles. Seriously, I’m addicted to the series. I’m addicted to the world.

She opened up her world to other writers as well, and that’s what I’ve been reading now. Like, I’m just going through the books like crazy. Over the weekend, I read like 4 books. No, I’m not exaggerating at all.

I’m a fast reader, I will admit that. I read fast, and I read easily. With having a Kindle Fire, it makes reading on the go a lot easier, but still. To read that many means I was sucked in. And it was with several different authors, as well.

Now, back to my NaNoWriMo thinking.

I want to create my own world. I want it to be full of life and magical. I want it to be unique but not completely. I want magicals and humans. I want to figure out a way to make it so that humans will “believe” what they’re told if they see something that they’re not supposed to see.

This is what I’m going to have to figure out. That’s what I’m going to need to work on.

Camp NaNoWriMo happens in July. I think I might participate for that. That’s what I love about Camp NaNoWriMo. You get to set your own goals and what you want to accomplish.

I think for July I want to have at least 10 characters created, and I need to have the basics for the world created. I need their rules. Their ideals. The main shops. The main “NPCs”. Things like that.

I think I can accomplish that. I think I can do that. No issues.
