Plots Within Plots

Yeah, right now all I’ve got is a timeline. It looks like a train wreck in the way plotlines should. That is, this person’s life is destined for serious screw-uppage. The problem is, there are no sidekicks. There are no other characters who go with my mc throughout his life or even parallel him. So now I get to make one up.

I suspect it won’t happen until Nanowrimo. That appears to be one of my best methods for creating believable characters: write them. Sigh. I would have liked a little bit clearer of a plot. Well, I’ve still got a month and a half to go, right?

I’ll break out the Nanowrimo book tonight and keep plugging stuff in as I can. Maybe I’ll find someone.
