Me: You know, it's a really good thing that the 2nd Young Indy DVD pack isn't out yet, because it's all WWI stuff, and I have very poor impulse control during Nano.
Franklin: I am not doing ANYTHING Indiana Jones like.
Me: Mm hm, whatever.
Franklin: I am not being played by Sean Patrick Flannery
Me: Don't tempt me. I still have the trading cards, and my mom just brought down my old calendar.
Franklin: That calendar is from 1993!
Me: Oh look at July, where you're Indy is a motorcycle courier in Verdun!
Franklin: help!

I have been fiddling with worldbuilding for Three Winters off and on for a few years now. The main thing I have done is the calendar. And being as that actually ties into knowing what's going on with Franklin's articles and journals, I thought I'd go ahead and post that here. )

Ok. With only two days left to go, I feel confident that I've finally picked a project to work on for this year's Nano. The same one I've been debating doing for like, 3 years now. The train one. I'll probably be posting it on my LJ, under a friends lock in all it's fabulously unedited quality. Partly because I like to have a lot of copies squirreled away if anything happens to my computer/flash drive, and partly because it's fun to read other people's Nanos, and unless it's REALLY bad, I want to be in on the fun.

The Train story now has a title at least. 'Three Winters' from a Chinese proverb that "A Kind Word Warms for Three Winters." It follows a few people on a cross-continent journey while they put themselves back together in the aftermath of a war.

Now here's where the Disclaimer comes in. Neither of the made-up countries in my story are stand ins for America, Iraq or anywhere else. At the same time I know that there's no way my opinions on current events aren't going to bleed into whatever I'm writing. I've tried not to blog about the war, I don't feel like I know enough to give any sort of worthwhile opinion. And for the most part, I don't know your opinions. But whether you're agreeing or disagreeing with anything I say that has to do with the war, I really don't want to talk about it in the comments. If you comment at all, I'd rather it be about plot or character or how miserable my grammar is.

I really don't think anything will even come up. But it's my ounce of prevention.
