1. I want to have fun writing it.I always feel pressured when I write something I know someone else is going to someday read it. I just want to have pure fun writing something with no pressure, just hands flowing across a keyboard.
2. I'm honing my storytelling skills.I think of this novel as my experimental writing ground. I've never written a full length novel. The Clockshifter doesn't really count because it was once 2 separate books rolled into 1 (before I edited that version to oblivion). I'm attempting to make this a full length novel. I'm also experimenting with other storytelling stuff.
3. I can put as many references as I want in it.Yes, this means I can keep the scene where my characters "accidentally" end up on The Avengers: Infinity War set. *mischievous grin*
It's not really a personal story, but I guess it is?
4. The story is for me.
5. It's a bunch of craziness.Yes, I do actually have a semi-detailed plan of where this novel is going, but it's pretty out there. I'm just a really weird person who tells weird stories. (Honestly, I think I'm the only one who will actually like this story.)
Even though you all will probably never read this novel, here's a little bit about it.........
Main Character: Nora Rae
What makes her unique?
She was born with a weird tattoo on her arm.
Where does this novel take place?
A town somewhere in the southwest that I have yet to name. It's based off of a super small town called Chloride. Look it up, it's a real place.
That's the main setting of this book, but the characters travel to LA and other cool parts of the world.
Why on earth is it called What No One Remembers?
Well...in this small town, everyone forgets everything every morning...except for Nora Rae. (Yes, this is inspired by a prompt on Pinterest.) So there's this cool circular plot thing at the end because Nora Rae is the only one who remembers the adventure.
What else is this book about?
Aliens. Lots of aliens. Just accept it.
Anything else you'd like to share?
I broke the NaNo rules and started this novel before NaNo actually started. No, I'm not counting the words I wrote before November for NaNoWriMo.
I want to stalk your progress on this weird-looking novel.
