So this month begins another NaNoWriMo spin-off, for July of course.
I know a few folks who will be participating, including Penny. As for me, I'm not sure if I will be able to participate at all.

Technically I could start writing the first couple of chapters of the novel, as the current planning doesn't directly affect it. However, I really want to figure out the key plot elements before starting.

So if anything, I will use JulNoWriMo to create a chronicle of the historical facts, characters backgrounds, maps, etc. It technically counts as writing after all.

Either way, I don't think I'll start writing until next Monday. Sure I'll fall behind, but it's still possible to catch up and surpass if you try hard enough [something I've done quite a few Nanos.

We'll see how it goes.

I think, actually, that I will follow your lead with planning this month. I keep sitting down to work on a rewrite, and I keep changing names and details, so I am going to try to keep a log of what I know about the characters and the places while writing at the same time. Eek! What a challenge!

I am realizing that an outline would really help me to focus my efforts more. If I have an outline in chronological order, than it will be much easier to writer the story out of order, but still making some sense.

Good luck to you, friend!
