I've talked about how my project for NaNoWriMo was my Ranger Newman story. Well, I got 5,000 words in and kinda stopped writing things down. I knew this was probably going to happen, I have this tendency to get really into something for a week and then just stop, but I haven't given up on the story. Throughout November and December the story kept going on in my head. How could I end this with a hook for a sequel? Why is Ranger's girlfriend different than I planned? Should I kill someone off?

Then came the big question, How can I make this long enough without being mostly fluff? The answer: I couldn't. Solution, combine parts of the story. I knew right away that I wanted Ranger Newman's story to be in five parts, but these parts are going to end up being to short by themselves, So I've decided to combine them into one novel. Which brings me to two more problems

Problem one, My second part does not fit with the story at all. It was my original idea for Ranger before the clone thing took off, and now it just seems wrong. All of the other ones involve the clones in some way. Solution: I'm either going to have to remove part two and make it be four parts (Which I really do not want to do) or create a new story to be told there. I've already got an idea for a new one, which will somewhat overlap with part three.

Problem two: I'm going to be writing these in first person, and part 5 will end in such a way that Ranger can't narrate it. Solution: Part 5 will be told by Ranger's girlfriend.


Random parts suddenly happen in my head, and they all are sticking. I even have some of the ways Ranger has died, and one of them happens twice.

And this is my fourth post for it. I Guess I don't think I'm too interesting.


Anyways, It's almost November, Which is NaNoWriMo. I tried to do NaNoWriMo when I was younger (Was it when I was 12?), and I completely gave up. Since then I have gotten better at writing, have about 2 good short stories (and one in progress since august), and have come up with better characters than cats.

My current Idea involves a man named Ranger Newman. I decided on the name Ranger because I wanted some sort of weird thing for a name and it was the first thing that popped into my head. Maybe I was thinking of D&D at the time. When I finally decided to use this name on a character it was supposed to be for an adventure type game where he and a clone take on Cthulhu. Now he is a clone, but is still going around with another clone. My current version starts out Ranger finding out he's been dead for a year. Not only has he been dead for a year, but he has died 6 times. I'm going to use NaNoWriMo as an excuse to write this stuff down.
