Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Tiara, I downloaded yWriter, which helps for plotting your novel. Not sure if you've tried something like that, but maybe it would help. You use it to write scenes, then you can organize the scenes however you want later on. Since I just did my last two novel attempts on Word, I'm hoping this will ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I am starting to get really stressed and frustrated about NaNo, I still have yet to sit down and make detailed plot for the book, and I having a hard time find the time and inspiration to do the detailed plotting. If I can't even manage to get the plot squared away then how will I ever time and insp...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

There are a couple of websites I consider to be useful in coming up with names--I tend to go by meanings--for characters. One is http://www.behindthename.com; it has a secondary site for surnames, http://www.behindthesurname.com . It has a random renamer that's fun, there are lists of most popular ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Thanks everyone for the feedback and input. Tazzy, I think the first guy looks like a Simon and the second one looks like a Nicholas. Have you made last names for them yet? Maybe Nicholas could be Nicholas McKenzie (assuming that sounds right like it goes together) or it could be his middle name or ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Tiara -- I vote for Nathan for the first handsome man. As far as the second, if it would be significant to the story to have the second man's name McKenzie, then I would use it. If not, then Nicholas (Nick) would be a good choice. BTW, I see you live in Puyallup. I live in Tacoma (actually a little...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Okay, so I have been trying to find names that fit some of my supporting male characters and I have figure out two different names for the two nameless guys and so I thought I would get some feedback from you guys to help me make my choice. The first guy is Autumn's husband, a man in his late 20's e...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Okay, so I need the mind of a writer. I am still trying to plot out the series that I am going to be working on in this NaNo and the next few years, because it is a four book series that all run on each other I have to plan it all out as a whole so that I know that is going on in each book when I br...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Shopping, maybe? Here in California, the big emphasis is either gardening or shopping in spring. Maybe the MC's mom takes her on a trip to purchase a new flower variety that just became available; during the drive--a longish one--they could talk. When they get to the place where this flower variety...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Yeah I think I might change the jam making from winter to fall and then have the candle making as a winter thing. But I don't know what to do for spring. I don't want them planting anything or doing anything that has to do with a green thump and garden because the mother is a florist and she is alw...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I have actually looked online for ideas too, but the only ones I saw that I liked were going to the zoo to see the baby animals that are born in the spring, going hiking or biking or horseback riding and pottery but that last one isn't an outside thing, but I kind of really like the idea of raising ...
