I've signed up for Nano...

and I have no idea what I'm doing!

and I haven't told my husband yet - but I'm sure he won't mind... :)

I have two different ideas brewing...

Both ideas have characters and settings and a few scenes/inspirations but I haven't yet been hit with an inciting incident or major hook/conflict. Madly waiting for the lightning bolt to set one idea on fire! I am a fan of winging it so not too phased by not having an outline...

Following Girl Fridays visual inspiration for her nano - here's some inspiration for mine:

Inspiration for Idea #1:
(carefree and off-beat story)







Inspiration for Idea #2
( a bit darker, more emotional idea)






you can add me (I'm NomesR) - I'm starting to feel kinda pumped about it...

(maybe slightly freaked out as well)

  1. I LOVE the pictures. I must hear about your ideas :) I'm thinking of joining NaNo myself.

  2. Those images are amazing. I would have to say the one that tickles my senses is of the boy and girl stooped down kissing as the balloons give them cover.

    I hope you stay PUMPED!

    Post a few on my way posts and we can help you stay pumped.

  4. Yay!!! My username is Jen_Unedited. This is my first year joining and like you I have no idea what I'm doing, I have a few ideas both sort of mapped out so I'm hoping that something comes to front when November 1st arrives! But I'll be sure to follow your journey!

  21. Yay, congratulations! I'm sure you will do brilliantly at it!

    Visual inspirations are awesome and I sue them all the time when I write. The website 'We Heart It' has some really great ones. :)

    Anyway, your pictures are great and I'm already intrigued about the story lines! I wish I could participate myself, but my final exams run through November... I suppose I could start late... Hmm... You're tempting me. Haha.

  24. I'm liking the visual inspiration ideas. I usually get inspiration from music, but I love how your two sets of pictures have such distinct 'feels' to them.

    Good luck with Nano! :)
