If you can’t handle me at my Bertha Mason, you sure as heck don’t deserve me at my Jane Eyre.
If you can’t handle me at my Cathy Earnshaw, that is perfectly understandable and probably a good thing

Happy coffee day, book lovers!
As everyone enjoys the last weeks of summer and looks forward to the relief of fall (look, it’s fucking hot in Beijing), there is one thing we can all look forward to: NaNoWriMo is coming!
"Oh fuck you, Agent Black," you might say. "We just dealt with NaNoWriMo. Give us a break. November’s two and a half months away!"
Okay, okay, I totally get that, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s coming (again), and a lot more people participate in November than they do any other time. Why am I mentioning this now? Because I’d like to run a month-long plotting activity to prepare for NaNo or anything else in September! I picked September because it gives you a month’s buffer between finishing your plot outline and launching into your actual story, giving you time to take a breather, scribble down more notes, or move your schedule around. So prepare for FuckYourWritingHabit’s September Plot-A-Month-Smorgasbord… okay, okay, I’m not good at names. Here’s what you need to know:
- Each day I have a post, giving you something new to focus on crafting your plot outline and notes. This will be based loosely on Karen Wiesner’s First Draft in 30 Days scheduling, although out of respect for copyright and other reasons I will try to change it up (offer free material, differences in schedule/advice, etc).
- You have to do absolutely nothing in order to participate. You can follow them daily, or save them up and do them on a weekend, or go back through the tags(#Plot A Month) to do them later. You don’t need to post anything, tag anything with the blog’s name, nothing. On the other hand, you totally can and that would be totally cool!
- The end goal will be to have a useable plot outline, with research done and maps sketched out, to guide you through your future writing project. Chances are you won’t have it complete in a month (neither will I), but it will be there for future use.
Participation not necessary! This activity will be limited to one main post a day, with follow-up posts as necessary, but will not take up the whole blog. It’s only goal is to have a plot outline plan laid out by the end of the month, completely there for any future use or addition. Other resources and free material and advice will be liberally applied; the most important part? To have fun!
Tentative Schedule subject to change due to necessity):
- August 25-31: Pre-month brainstorming activities!
- Week 1: Characters, Setting, and Plot Ideas
- Week 2: Research, Methods and Resources
- Week 3: Plotting! Structure and Outline
- Week 4: Catch-Up, Outline Finalizing, Last Minute Notes
WOO PLOT A MONTH WOO. Here’s how the schedule will work this year:
- Posts from Week 0 to Week 4 will be posted from today through Oct 31. Some posts will be posted twice a day to make sure it all gets up before November. You can always find a guide to all of them in the Special Posts page.
- Remember, Plot a Month is a general guide, not a strict plan! Don’t feel bad if you don’t get everything done this month. The goal is just to prepare you for NaNoWriMo/your project, and any prep is better than none.
- I will be moving to Japan on the 6th (!!!), and the part-time job I had waiting for me seems to have fallen through (.-.). I am going to be stressed out for a bit. So if the posts are late, please please shoot me a message and I will get on that.
- Have fun!!!!!
