Need more story! - Helen's journal and online home
In which an old dog attempts to learn new tricks.
Need more story!
I am not doing NaNoWriMo, but I find the NaNo frenzy helps my writing motivation -- which has been precisely zero for quite a while. So far I have:

1) Imported the unfinished novel manuscript from my last serious NaNo attempt into YWriter.
2) Realised that the reason I can't get any further is that I don't know how it ends.
3) Realised that the reason I don't know how it ends is that the plot outline only takes me to the middle of the story.

I need another half-novel's worth of plot!

Current Mood: creative creative

Is it possibly that the story already ended and you actually have a novella and not a novel?

That happened to me the first time I attempted NaNo. I'm hoping this one fleshes out better.

Without an ending, I can't even begin.
I have a middle, although it's vague. It's the heart of the story though so...
Onward & sideways.

I'm not NaNo-ing BTW. Not my thing. :)

May your muse be with you!
