when it comes to writing for nanowrimo i always go the fantasy route so that i dont get bogged down researching details. i get very stressed that i will make mistakes that are silly or offensive or break the credibility of my story if a major plot point relies on my mistake.

while it would be very appropriate to set my story in 1920s alberta, its also really impractical. maybe rather i should be taking the social and racial elements i wanted to include and use them in a metaphorical fantasy setting. the plot would hardly change and i’d have more creative freedom…

nanowrimo 2014 is coming up and im getting cautiously prepared on the off chance i can make an honest attempt this year.

after a flash of inspiration ive been searching the web for information on plains cree in canada in the 20’s, residential schools, and folk lore about the Mannegishi.

the inspiration i had was simple, i thought of a girl hunting a monster, and the phrase:
“what happened ten years ago”
