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!

There’s a Story?

 

ZOMG! I have a full premise for the story, with SEVERAL QUESTIONS that need to be answered!

BUT!! I’m not going to share until after my write-in on Sunday because that makes me have to WRITE (still have not one word ?).

BUT I told my family (and my husband told his gaming buds) and everyone thinks it’s a good idea, so I’m going with it!

Long Time No Post

I’m bad about this blogging thing.

Actually, I’ve just been really exhausted. Working 50 hours this week alone, and I worked 45 hours last week! And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any easier on me anytime soon (or anyone of us).

So, I’m posting, FINALLY, again, with a warning that I won’t be steady until August. Then I’ll be working on prepping for #NaNoWriMo and I’m stupid excited for that!

Do I have an idea for it? Nope, not a clue.

But I’m ready to begin!

The Best Day

As I sit here,  watching Monster University, I’m smiling.  Today was a good day.

Today,  we finally got me a Bluetooth keyboard. It was needed for NaNoWriMo writing on the go. I can use it while we’re in the car, when I’m at work (on breaks,  of course) . It’s going to make my life just a little easier.  I’m actually writing with it right now!

Today,  I finished my last shift before my vacation.  I’m proud of myself for working as much as I have. I need the break though. I’m having some major shoulder pain from the repetitive motions. I’m still planning on going to the gym and all that jazz,  including strength exercises for the shoulder,  but that’s all I’ll be doing with it.

Josh is going to be on vacation too! I’m sure we’ll end up wanting to kill each other by the end of the week,  but that’s one of the reasons I’m thankful we have the gym for me to go to (or Josh, 😉 ) . It gives us a small break from each other!

SO TIRED

12.5 hour shift.
28132 steps (SHealth says 28987)
11.73 miles (16.46 miles)
523 active minutes (295)
 
I’m not even wanting to know true calorie burn but I’m counting THAT as a workout.
 
And I did it on 4 hours of sleep (5 according to SHealth). And 3 from yesterday.
 
Good night and I get to do it all again tomorrow. Monday’s my day off and I might make it an actual day off (I’d planned on doing arms to give my legs a break, )
