NaNoWriMo 2014 - Project - Clearwood Hunters #1: Broken Halos

In a little over a week, NaNoWriMo for this year begins. I'm not completely prepared, but I do have my plot outline complete. I've started breaking things down into scenes though I doubt I'll be done by November. I'm working on a complete rewrite of a previous NaNo project.

Delicate Sins of my Clearwood Hunters Series is getting a completely new plot. The original has many plot holes and the new plot is much more thought out. It will even getting a new name. I'm keeping the characters but they all have new wants and goals. Character relationships have changed as well. Overall everything works a lot better.

Every time I've tried to do a rewrite with the previous plot, it didn't go very far. I'm very pleased with the new outline and my characters have been given more depth.

After NaNoWriMo, the second novel in the series, Moonswept Deceit will also be getting a rewrite and possibly a new title. That plot has been changed for the better as well. After that, I'll finally be moving on to the other books in the series.

I plan to post the novels online as web fiction after they've been edited. For as long as I've been working on this series, it's always been for fun and I've never really thought of publishing it outside of self publishing. Well I had at one point but I think it's better this way.

Other than that, I've been debating on whether I want to draw a cover image for the novel or just leave it blank for nano. I haven't drawn anything in a while.
