Nanowrimo is ongoing and I can see the end...of the month, but not the story. I will reach 50,000 words but I don't know when the story will end.
If I have a plan or technique for writing a novel -and I can't say I have as I haven't finished one -I guess it is to read 2-3 books on appropriate research topics, then write a first draft. Then, once I know what I need to know, do more research. I need a big piece of paper to get organized on and Scrivener's bulletin board feature isn't tactile enough for me. I prefer real paper and inks of varied colours.
