I got the outline for the Nano romance put together over the weekend, and it came in at 45 scenes, which is about what I was aiming for. Some of the scenes will be a ton of fun to write, too, so I’m starting to get excited about November.
However. (Isn’t there always a however?) However, I have a lot of research to do. My big job today was writing down all the questions I could think of that have sprung out of my outline, categorizing them, and figuring out how to get the research done for them. I sent out three email requests to people in the know, and now I get to wait for responses. (Checks email inbox again.)
Just in case you all are knowledgable about these things, the categories are:
Police procedural work in Canada on a drug raid.
The city of Victoria, BC.
Anyone stepping up to the plate to help? No? And drat, my email inbox is STILL empty. Did I remember to tell everyone that time is of the essence? Taps fingers. Right, I have two weeks yet, but I’m aware that some of these answers might well lead to new questions, and we’ll need time to answer those too. I’m off to check my email…
