Nov. is National Write a Novel Month, YAY!


I'm actually going to take a crack at this and write the rough draft for a short novel in 1 month. Got 2 ideas floating around in my head right now. One is about a posse of ghost outlaws protecting the living in a haunted old west saloon. The other is my own take on the whole sentient robots genre, in which I would take the idea in a different direction than TFs.

I have the entire story for the Ghost Posse already figured out, including major plot points, the two main characters, the villain, a few supporting characters, opening scenes, and the end. The thing practically wrote itself (I was inspired after watching an episode of "The Dead Files).

The robot story has a main character and not much else. It's been a pain in the ass trying to create a unique, alien world for them, that's not just a ball of metal floating in space and that looks and feels as different from Transformers as possible. And also avoids most all the usual tropes that surround robot stories (the quest to become more human, the evil robot uprising that wipes out people, the technology vs. nature themes, etc.). Oh, and is still an adventure story. It's. . . not easy.

So anyway, I plan on using this thread to update my progress. Busting out some planning stages, and on November 1st I'm going to start putting words on the page!
