Good news: I met my word count goal for Day 1 of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Woo hoo! My story is a time travel romance set in World War II Bletchley Park, and yes, Alan Turing will make a guest appearance.
I always have my students set up the elements of their plot before they begin. In honor of my mathematical setting, I have renamed my own plot elements as follows:
- Beginning = Defining the Variables
- Inciting Incident = Reality Is a Special Case
- Rising Action = Problem Sets
- Climax = Limit
- Falling Action = Proof
- Resolution = QED
Wishing a great November to all the NaNoWriMo authors out there! We’ve got this!
