Uh Oh.. My month of NanoWrimo preparation is almost 1/2 completed and I have been 5 days since my last daily post. Life and work intervened. Thursday I went to a concert by Deborah Linden and Leslie Hudson aka Sinderella. Friday we hooked up our trailer to go spend Thanksgiving at Bass Lake Provincial Park. Unfortunately Bass Lake closed for the season on September 23. We ended up at McRae Point Provincial Park southeast of Orillia and it was wonderful. We had a fantastic camping weekend.
Nano preparations: I spent a couple hours reworking some of my timelines and plots in Freemind. I did alot of headwork on my story. SJ and I spent alot of time walking through the woods at the campground and talking about the ins and outs of her story… but I’ll leave her to write about that.
Things I need to do:
- CNE research on the CNE Archives site.
- Maybe some basic historical research for several of my characters including post vatican II changes to religious orders, summer of love, rock music of the 70s and some other significant events.
- Keep working with learning how to use Scrivener. I think it will be a very useful tool.
- Oh, and these CNE videos hosted by Stephen Page will also help with my research.
