Where to go?  I know some of the writing, some of the things I need to fix and add in, some comments that need to be made, some thoughts that need a mention from the characters.  But I don’t have a damn clue where they’re going to end up.  Is there an organized rebellion?  Just a loose group of individuals?  Is there a whole country at war, or one that’s suppressed and fighting back only through resistance-type actions?  Are none of these the case at all, and there is no rebellion, resistance or war to find?  And most of all, why is the central character so important to so many people?  I know roughly…but again, I don’t know the specifics or the details.  I only have fleeting touches of the final idea I’m trying to find.

Typical that the story should hit its first major block as NaNo is closing in.  Ho hum…

I may find the answer by writing.  The last time I didn’t know what would happen next, my characters set to walking to find the nearest town.  I kept wondering what they’d find; and what they found was nothing like I’d been expecting or imagining.  That time, they were fleeing to the east; so this time, walking westward, perhaps they’ll find the next part of the story for me.
