A Pantsing We Will Go

This is my 10th NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and as such I have decided that I am going to be a proper Pantser this November.

This has nothing to do with the fact my idea is silly and will most likely derail off any outline I attempt to give it within the first hundred words.

Nope, not that at all.

No, this is a solid commitment to the ideals of Pantser-hood: namely refusing to think about the novel until the crack of day on November 1st. I will be doing no planning, no outlines, no character building, nada.

The fact that I am reusing characters from a failed NaNo (Dogs of the Never Never) is totally not cheating.

Neither is the fact that much like That Don’t Impress Me Much, this will be a semi-parody of something I love.

Now I’m going to go off and rewatch Pitch Black for the nine-thousandth time… but it totally doesn’t count as research. *shifty eyes*

EDIT: Behold! A cover!

NaNoWriMo 2015!
