Plotober is here!!!
Plot-what? Plotober is our preparation month for the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which takes place in November. I will paticipate this year with my BJD World story – also will River from Strike a Spark with her friend Cloud and some local friends will be in the boat.
Basically I want to write the first part of my Dolly Universe with some pressure of NaNo. I already started on the preparations – so what can I already show you?
“VeVe – Book 1”
Centuries passed by, since the godlike Daevas, Emperors of all Demons and ghostlike Creatures, tried to conquer the earth under the command of Ahriman. Ahriman the snake, the butcher and master. His loyal servants are shattered and broken all over this and the other world. The world of souls and gods. But dark clouds are in the sky and the air begins to crackle.
A dead Raven lies in front of the shop, Marielle knows that this is not a good sign at all. She does not only feel it around her, but also in herself that something is coming. Something big. She closes her eyes and listens to the Otherworld. But everything she sees are a pair of red eyes.
Veve is a novel about three women and their little Wicca Shop, supernatural cases and the harmony of both worlds. The world of the mortals and the Otherworld.
I wrote it in German first and translated it after. I think that will work the best for me. So I will stick to German in the whole writing process. I announced the novel on the NaNo homepage yesterday, so I am official participating.
I also worked on my characters, story line, chapters and locations… but that is not nearly finished. I have my main characters done, since they already existed. But I will now have to focus on the extra characters and locations. I have a concept of chapters, but I am not so happy with that, so I am considering to redo that. But first things first.
As you can see, Plotober means a lot of prep work for me, so I can get through NaNo as far as possible. I am realistic enough to know, that the possibility to win NaNo in the first year is for me kind of utopian, BUT I really want to start this novel and get as far as possible. But we will know for sure, when November is done.
I will keep you updated – so see you and cheers ❤
