Keep fleshing out your outline while the ideas are on you. :) It will make November so much easier, and itch the writing bug.
I intend to! When I first started, I was hoovering between different plotting methods (snowflake, phasing), but following my own outlining instincts, eventhough I’ve never done it before, seems to be serving me best. Even as basic as it is now, I would like to think there’s a nice flow to the story, coming from an overall decent build-up and plenty of ideas for appropriate scenes. Characters too have come alive after some (too much really) brainstorming, and it has been very interesting to see how I started out imagining them one way, yet as my ideas for the story and their backstories progressed, they’ve changed beyond recognition. The only more or less relevant concern I have at this point is how to incorporate some of the more philosophical themes into the plot, but given the nature of the story and the way it should unfold, it’s probably going to be less of a problem than I now suspect it will be. I suppose I’m just intimidated by the prospect of having to venture into the more “intellectual” side of the matter and come up with something that doesn’t sound like total nonsensical crap. But that’s of later concern really, and it doesn’t take anything away from my current excitement.
