Thread: NaNoWriMo 2019

  1. #121
    It's a pity that NaNoWriMo has passed because I've dreamed up a corker of an idea for a story. Yes, I know ideas are two a penny, but I'd be surprised if this one has been tried before. I know everyone says that but I'll start planning it out in a couple of weeks - after the hagglers have been and gone from viewing my flat.

    SOC is frequently tiring and irritating to read, so I try to avoid it when I can. It can also devolve into meandering navel-gazing.

    I do some of both. Not writing a memoir, but the effect is somewhat similar in that I'm using a first-person perspective. I'm using SOC more to show the emotional state of a given character. One of the POVs is a rather neurotic fellow, so SOC gets used to show how scattered, emotional and overwhelmed he can be. That character outwardly appears to have his shizznit together; dude lies something fierce with his body language, so I have to give an insider's perspective on what's going on in there. Even non-neurotic characters get their moments to shine in SOC or something closer to it; but again, it's about showing just how overwhelmed said characters are..

    We'll burn that bridge when we come to it.
