An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.I'm currently working on some notes for a NaNo Novel that I plan to write in November for National Novel Writing Month.
Right now, I'm writing up some notes and character sketches; I can't imagine starting a novel totally cold and expecting it to come out coherent, so I will have some kind of structure in place before November.
The working title is Quinella, but I already know that this will not be the final title.
If you're interested in seeing someone's writing process, go to NaNo Novel. If not, it's all cool.
By the way, Qeah, one of my characters, is slightly overweight, but this will not be the main focus of my novel, simply an aspect.
I'll try to post more here.
