I spend a lot of time at work thinking about the plot of the novel.
Today, I managed to make it all the way through work without thinking up an entirely different plot.
So, now, I think I may have finally settled on the actual plot of the novel. There is a huge amount of potential conflict built in to the plot and all I have to do is think up every possible thing that could go wrong and run with it.
I am quite glad of this, because I was growing tired of starting work with one plot in my head and finishing work with a totally different one. The details of the plot are what I have to think upon a great deal. I know enough about the first act that I can probably sit down and start writing on it.
The novel is pretty religious themed and that is going to turn some people off, I fear. But that’s what I want to talk about. I want to talk about religion. A little part of me still wants it to be about reverse culture shock, but I can’t figure out how to fit that angle into the story.
Anyway. I may go for a little bit of a drink tonight and then come back and write on the novel. That is one possible thing that might happen. I might just take a nap and wake up early in the morning and do it then. I don’t know yet. Depends on how I feel in the next few minutes what I’m going to do. Some tequila sure would be nice right now.
