Nanowrimo – The Last Day

It’s the last day of Nanowrimo. My goal for today? To finish up as much research as possible and complete the outline for the story.

I’m not really much of an outline kind of person. Except when I am working on someone else’s idea or else on a very complicated story. This is both. There are a number of different plots going on that I need to identify and outline and characters that I need to flesh out. They are all up in my brain, I just need to get them down on paper now.

I’m a little concerned that I am getting sidetracked by the research. This is why I’m giving myself tonight and tonight only to finish everything up. Write down all of the information that I need tonight and return the books to the libraries tomorrow.

I find that if I try to organise myself  too much that I get to focussed on the methods of organisation and forget to get the work done. Sometimes it’s better just to launch yourself headlong into something just so that it gets done.

    Think it’s called the paralysis of analysis. I too suffer from that. When you add in absentmindedness you’ve got yourself a real humdinger of a problem!

To speak of Ardan the Grim is to speak of many things. One must tell of how he was the last in a line of men who had stood for far Tharid. A line descended from Ardan the Fair, who left Asbaln that there should be no quarrels with his brother, Randell of Avantir. Both of them being sons of the famous Guardian of the Sword of Avantir, Rorick. Wyrta the seer spoke to him in these words: "In the twentieth year, on spring's first day, seek a path to the West away. Go to the land of the Silver Hair, for thy fate does await thee there." Years after Rorick and Conel rode forth to free the land of Asbaln from the barbaric tribes, comes one man who will ride forth to save the kingdom and he will wear... The Crystal Crown.
