The Spider Network: plans.

31 01 2010

There’s a piece of A4, plain paper lying around here somewhere with a very brief and very messy plan for a novel called The Spider Network. The idea came after the rush of NaNoWriMo, in the weeks after when you frantically search for ideas for the next year. As I have 2 more plans lying around that I’m positive can give me enough passion, inspiration and plot to win this year, I’ve decided to start writing the Spider Network as my very own  online novel. If everything goes to plan, a new chapter will be added every Thursday (this is because it sounded right) and there will be 25 chapters, not including the prologue and epilogue that I might not write.

I still haven’t got everything (or really, anything) perfected or even organized in my head, but here’s what I’m planning:

The story will be about a telepathic connection between 24 seemingly unconnected people, all from different parts of the world. They will eventually meet (or maybe not). They will try to find out why and how they can communicate this way and more importantly, how they can stop it.

Each chapter will follow a new character, and the final chapter will follow all of them.

So Chloe, when’s this thing going to start?

I’m working on the planning as you read this, most likely, and I’m hoping to bring you the first slice by February the 11th. The whole thing should be finished in mid-July, and after that it’ll probably go through a load of editing and maybe if I can get a bit more knowledge of  technology I’ll put it all on one of those PDF thingamajigs.



The possibilities are endless.

Following my decision to join NaNoWriMo, I’ve been playing around with GIMP a little.
My book is going to be called Freedom Fictitious (more info to come).

Here are a few possible covers I’ve made:
cover1 nano cover 3 nano cover 2

All products of boredom, of course.
I might draw a couple later.

Made these too, while I was at it:
NaNo 5000 words NaNo 10k words NaNo 15k words NaNo 20k words NaNo 25k words NaNo 30k words NaNo 40k words NaNo WIN

In other news: Mum’s got Swine Flu and it’s brother number 2’s birthday today.
I like preparing the party food.

As always, an NaNoers can find me on the NaNo site under the name Gadgical.
Love you guys.

NaNoWriMo sounds like an iPod theme tune.

It isn’t. It’s National Novel Writing Month. It’s November. Fear me, I’m a first-year.
I’ve been hanging around the NaNo forums a hell of a lot.
I’ve also been in the VF cult for this event.

30 days, 50, 000 words. No problem, right?

I’ve been slowly doing my outline.
This is what I’ve got: A girl (14-18), trapped in a room. Don’t know what by yet. Her imagination is the key to her escape. Fun, right?

Possible title: Freedom Fictitious.

I’ve been working on character sheets for days.

I’m yet to type my Day Zero List. Finished it with pen & paper though.
Might be joining a choir type thing.

P.s. If anyone reading this is doing NaNo, or is interested, comment this please.
