NaNo WriMo

Posted October 14th, 2008 at 04:21 PM by Roland
National novel writing month is just around the corner, and as part of my newest moonlighting project I have been asked to write a novel for a video game universe concept that is currently in development. Basically this company wants to make a line of games all centered around this core plot, and after giving me a very, very basic set of guidelines has allowed me almost complete freedom over their potential universe.

I have been doing some quick writes, working on characters, sub plots, and doing my research (Lots and lots of historical references needed. Who knew the Oreo was created in 1912?) all the while working alongside the programmers and conceptual artists to help steer everything in the proper direction.

I have done Nanowrimo for the past two years and never successfully completed a novel, but this year I am feeling really good about it.

I look forward to seeign how you do. If you get into detail, like when the oreo came to be, it's certainly going to be good.

What are these basic guidlines anyway? The plot? The setting?

To clarify I am not being paid for this as of yet, I am doing this as a favor to a friend, and a stake in a potentially successful company.

Also I am not sure how much I wish to disclose as far as the story goes, gotta keep something a surprise.

The setting is Earth from 1911 to the invasion of Poland, and from there we will see.
