Fanficcers Unite! NaNo 2007
I was just introduced to this community, as I'm writing fanfic for NaNoWriMo this year. A little about me and my story, first:|
I'm Michelle, often called Crysania (and happily so...either name is good!), 32 years old, spending my life working a boring day job and getting to teach (college level music) part time. And ironically (for those who recognize the name), I am not writing a DragonLance fic. For the past several months I've been voraciously reading every darned Pirates of the Caribbean fic that includes the Jack/Elizabeth pairing (no Will for me, thank you very much!). I've been wanting to write my own POTC fic and couldn't get much further than the first short chapter each time. So I decided for NaNo to force myself into starting and continuing a fic. I've never written anything this long before so I'm quite excited to be embarking upon it. So far I've written 7018 words, which I'm thrilled with.
As to my curiosity. I'm wondering how everyone is going about his. Do you have plot outlines, clear ideas of where your story is going? Or are you just writing and seeing what happens? I'm doing the latter right now and it's been interesting so far. Things have happened that I didn't quite envision when I first set out to do it, but I like how it's turning out so far.
