One Week From Tomorrow...

I'm slowly hammering out the battle plan for Steelgrave, this year's NaNoWriMo project

Things I'm pretty sure of:

  1. Jonah Steelgrave, 
  2. his childhood best friend Doyle Reed
  3. the relationship between our world and the world beyond the portal
    1. The world beyond the portal's time flows differently.  A minute in our world equals an hour on the other side of the portal.  Consequently, sixty years pass on the other side for every one of ours.
    2. There may be more than one portal
  4. the magic system (a combination of The Magicians by Lev Grossman and the Granny Weatherwax books by Terry Pratchett)
  5. the setup
  6. the whereabouts of Jonah's missing mother at the beginning of the novel
  7. the ending

Things yet to be done:

  1. coming up with credible villains
  2. the names of Jonah's childhood sweetheart and her husband
  3. Jonah's father figure and his role in the proceedings
  4. enough plot twists to keep everything going
  5. the name of the town
  6. the master "if I get stuck" list
