NaNoWriMo Journal: Day 8


The hour draws late when I send you this message, and sooner or later the monsters are going to come out. This time change has been weird on my schedule: not too much of a hindrance, I think. I got in and out; a whole chapter written. I’m making great progress towards finding Lord Antiwinter: he may even be ousted before I’m halfway through the book. Stay tuned.

Today’s hot tip: Classically known dilemmas/plots/character arcs are completely acceptable in all forms of writing, provided you handle them correctly. With the right management, you can essentially “un-cliché” well-known plot archetypes. Essentially, you can tell the same stories, but as long as they are well-written, people will want it. Why do you think Dune and Star Wars are both huge hits in the movie industry?

Oop, I gotta go. Just be sure to tell Jeremy that–
