It's been fun getting back into the genealogy data I brought back from Ireland. I'm looking at dates, ages, and marriages of the children of my main and supporting characters, with a special view toward finding subplots for the novelized version of their lives. Though no storylines have jumped out at me, yet, I did notice a sadly high child mortality rate. Some of these houses full of children in the background of my scenes - didn't have as many children as I'd thought.
For years I've been toying with a Bible reading guide, and the one devotion I'd written in my mind came back to me Sunday night. *lightbulb flash* That's what I'll do! I don't know if that idea will expand to the required 50,000 words, but the outline is easy (a calendar).
I'm not saying I can work on both the nano-novel and Moate at the same time. Just that thinking about the Bible won't yank me out of my Christian historical mindset. It may even give me ideas to incorporate. Plus, now I have something to work on at write-ins!
