Yes, I have been bitten by the NaNo bug. Even though it's only the beginning of August, and November is three months away, I have started planning my story. And this year, I'm going to make sure I finish. I'm going to plan out all the major happenings, and do character charts for all my characters, and make maps, and write long descriptions of everything, and anything else that could be handy. Even if I never use half the stuff, it's still useful to have around.
The idea for my novel struck me in a second of inspiration yesterday. It's about a young woman who goes on a religious pilgrimage. Of course there's more to it than that, but it's really hard to explain since I only have vague ideas about where I want it to go. So, as soon I get more details, I shall write them down here.
