That’s it! I’m all done. I just need to hit print on my notes. This includes my outline, character profiles, scene descriptions with goal, conflict, stakes and resolutions defined, as well as a crucial timeline of events. I’ve also learned my lesson from the first draft of my last project where somebody who had died earlier turned up at the climax, so I’ve produced a chart to show where/when/what everyone is doing at various points during the epic showdown. It’s the most detailed batch of notes I’ve ever produced. You can’t be too prepared, right?
I’ve also decided to up my goal to 60,000 words if I can get to 30,000 in the first two weeks. I’m aiming for a minimum of 2,500 words a day.
For everyone else starting at camp tomorrow, good luck!
