If I may make a suggestion - - let your Id take the driver's seat, and just write randomly (but with a general idea in mind, for the sake of direction). You might find something of interest in the carnage afterward.


Speaking of "the carnage afterwards," has anyone here ever tried NaNoWriMo or other speed-writing challenges? Was it worth it?

One of my favourite webcomic writers basically learned to write narrative prose in public: he put up chapters of a rambling make-it-up-as-you-go-along novel on his website. Early installments were very badly written, and he left it unfinished once he'd grown out of it. But he learned enough from the process to script the aforementioned webcomic and also do well-crafted short stories.
