I have a Plot (ignore the terrible outline)

Okay, now I have a workable plot! Well, a good chunk of one. This might get me to at least the end of the fifty thousand words! Or at least twenty five thousand!

  1. Thork brings back Arona.
    They travel up the Trackless Sea
    2. They land in Neverwinter
    3. They travel through the Neverwinter Wood
    a. Along the way, they pick up Jillie
    4. They trek through a metric fuckton of sand
    5. They end up in Longsaddle
    a. they must deal with at least one dark magic pissing contest
    b. they might meet up with a lycanthrope
    6. They cross the River Surbin and end up in the Evermoors.
    7. They stop in Nesme to pick up (or find) Soran
    8. They finally get to Silverymoon.
  2. They are given their assignment
    They head to Wayward House
    2. They get food and ale, catch up on the gossip.
    a. Jeni is in hot water with other cleric
    b. Bramkahm is finally located
    c. Someone got someone pregnant. This has absolutely no relevance on the story but it should hopefully make for some good dialogue?
    3. Jeni’s henchman comes for them.
    4. They get their assignment.
    a. go to Sundabar
    b. they are to steal something from “Old Grimfist” and plant it in Helm’s room
    c. Soran is to do it because of the orc Hatred.
  3. They get caught.
    Helm is the one who catches Soran.
    2. I have no idea what else is going to happen, but it is pretty awesome how that is going to work out! Well, I hope that it is awesome. It is a lot farther than I have ever made it before!
    3. Things will work out
    4. They will have to make it right
  4. They have to tell Jeni that it did not work.
    Jeni will make an attempt to kill them.
    2. In the process, Jeni will be mortally injured.
    3. In the process, Thork will be mortally injured.
    4. Arona must make the choice between Jeni and Thork.
    a. Will she go with her heart and save Thork?
    b. Will she go with “loyalty” and save Jeni? He is the one who trained her to utilize her abilities. But he is the one who used her for her abilities as well.
  5. She saves Thork. Obviously. She has to deal with the guilt of letting someone else die though.
  6. She runs away, but not back to Evermeet. That needs to be figured out. Somewhere where elves can go and blend in.

I think that is a pretty good start to a plot. It is truly the first time I have had a real plot outline at all! I love this. Now to actually start the writing of it and not the fluff going nowhere stuff that I have been writing!

The Struggle of Writing

NaNo-2015-Participant-Banner

I do not know where I am going to go with this story, or if I am going to go anywhere with it. I just want to find something that sucks me in and gets me going. I have yet to find it. I have yet to find my groove and that really bothers me. That is what is bothering me the most, I think. I am just stuck. SO very much stuck. I hate this and I hate that. I hate it all. This is the first year that I have hated my story so much. And it is not that I hate the story. It is just that I am having issues finding a place to get sucked into it. I do not know what I want to do. I just do not know what I want to do. That is the problem. That is always the problem. I wish someone could just write the story for me. Or at least, the very least, get me to a spot where I am not stuck. That would be the best part, I think. Just help me get unstuck. That would be a big help. A huge help to me, for sure.

Slow Going

Seriously slow going. The word count is not going up … at all. This year, NaNoWriMo is definitely kicking my butt. And it really sucks. It sucks really hard!

I’m hoping that using the stickers will encourage me to actually write now. SO far, they seem to be laughing at me and my lack of words. Really and truly just laughing at me!

The stickers came from MiscellanyBoulevard on Etsy and they are just too cute. The shopping cart, dinner, and dollar sign ones are by Libbie & Co.

Gonna Write a Novel

I love this song. I found this video last year, and I had to subscribe to her. She’s wonderful. 😀 I love her NaNoWriMo vlogs. They are a great inspiration, even if it’s just to know I’m not the only one stuck in the same boat!

She’s also calling out people who commented that they’d do it this year:

She’s a wonderful vlogger, and really inspirational, so I hope you at LEAST check out her videos. She definitely shows that being a geek/nerd is not a bad thing and that hot girls can be one, without being the stereotype 😉
