Pre-NaNoWriMo Inpiration from Robert J. Ray

Robert J. Ray
The Weekend Novelist
“As a novelist, you probe the lives of people around you – parents, family, friends, co-workers – searching for motives. And when you find the right motive, the perfect pitch of a motive, it makes your character hum. A character that hums at a high enough pitch will drive your whole novel.”

Two Days from NaNo – Scene Building

A scene is a slice of time and place that does not go on forever. It has a beginning and an ending.
