Time gathers pace and so my idea-sleet continues - of course. I can't just have one idea for NaNo, I must have loads and then find that none of them are developed enough to actually manage to write and finish a novel or even a plotline!
Anyway, in amongst all of this there is a question to be asked. Should one prologue? I mean, with my autism-politics plotline I thought a prologue would be a good way to show how the end goes down in such a way that draws a reader in. However, I also remembered that there are plenty of people and readers whose opinions I respect that say that they never even read prologues. Which makes sense.
So, should I bother writing one or should I cheat and make it chapter one? Or, horror, should I just not open and instead rely on the early life of my autistic future revolutionary to grab the reader?
Then there's the Aftermath plotline that keeps pootling around my head. I originally cheated and added it to the end of the plotline that appears on this blog as Bradford Interchange but... I dunno, I have a soft-spot for the idea of a non-linear plot but for the fact that I would have to write it linearly to begin with - that would be hard for me to do. In that sense it would be the perfect candidate for NaNo because I would be forced to write it and get it all done - and I may even edit it - but in another I worry that I would destroy it and get bored and then abandon it.
