Guess what, kids? Camp NaNoWriMo begins on Wednesday! So let's think through what we've covered the past two weeks, and see if we're ready to put pen to paper.
Have you decided on what genre you want to write? At least have an idea to begin, and if it changes as you write, well, that's the beauty of creativity. Have you got a character with a problem (or problems) to last for a whole story? Are you clear on the setting? Setting includes where on earth and when in time.
Homework: Try your best to imagine as much of your story as possible. For me, that is a visual process: I see scenes like a movie in my head. For you, it might be an emotion you want to capture, or maybe it feels like steps along a logical trail. Whatever your medium, now's the time to bring everything together.
