Why this Blog?

I hope that this blog will become a place to look after my writing ideas and that, over time, I can use it to archive all my favourite creative sites on the web. Maybe others will enjoy it too.

NaNo plot

Okay, so, this is going to be the home of my attempt on the north face of NaNoWriMo this year.  I guess that means it's as good a place as any to be doing some plotting and planning.

At this stage I'm looking at writing a political thriller with a main character who has high-functioning Asperger's and will end up taking over a country.  Think the rise of Hitler, with a smattering of French Revolution, and a great deal of using albums I like to suggest how the plot will unfold.  I'm thinking to start with the ending, follow it with the story of the main character's early life - where he shall have an affir and gravate towards the big cities and the different style of life there.  Somehow I'm thinking he will fall in with a group plotting their own government take over and, by dint of being autistic and single-mided, he'll end up in charge.

Yeah, it's like the Rise of Evil but... I dunno.  I hope it's interesting and I hope I can write it.

That... or something involving time travel and multiple dimensions.  That will end up with a large section in a Middle Ages area with a dragon.  Singular, small part.  Knight in shining armour that is not all they seem will rescue a damsel.
