NaNoWriMo Update #1: The Non-Writing Update Update

Today was the first NaNoWriMo* meeting I have ever attended and I was surprised by how much I got out of it! The fact of the matter is I didn't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't disappointed. Right now, I'm stuck in a purgatory of not meeting new people who share my interests but being surrounded by people who write fiction and get the same buzz out of it that I do was so inspiring. I'm just disappointed I'm not allowed to start writing until November. Surely there has to be some pre-NaNoWriMo writing allowance**?

I have two weeks before it begins. I know what I'm going to write so I might start plotting. I think this will be difficult, because I don't normally plot so heavily. I have A and C sorted out, but B is up in the air, usually dictated by characters than the story itself, which I think is the right direction to go in. So I'll try plotting, but I can't let myself get too heavily pulled into it else all hell will break loose.

We'll see, eh?

*National Novel Writing Month, obviously.
**I know there isn't, sob.
