yWriter5 | The Perfect Plotting Tool

Inspiration for Main Character

So I’ve been working hardcore on my plots today for NaNoWriMo, trying to get my outline together and settle more on the characters and exactly what is going to happen when. I’ve had a hell of a lot of ideas and keeping them in a notebook is, admittedly, my usual strategy. But I thought that this time I would attempt to do something different- and that something different consists of using software to plan, organize, and even write my novel!

So far I’ve set up all 26 of my chapters. I got some help from some people on the NaNoWriMo Forums¬†for a couple of the letters I needed for chapters- and am (at the moment) only missing one chapter title. Awesome, isn’t it?

Now that I have all of my chapters in I’m working on some character profiles and basic notes about quirks & etc. I’m also doing a little bit of research about useless science degrees (useless for the setting of the novel anyway) for my character to have so that it makes sense for him to be a genius and working in the bakery. (He’s a lot like Sheldon Cooper- hence the photo above.)

I’m so excited for NaNo now that the plotting has begun! Full steam ahead!
