Nano Prep - Step 1

Step 1 is all about figuring out what you know and you need to know. In my case there is much more that I need to know than what I actually know. As always, I have a long way to go before November and not a lot of time to get there.

Okay here's what I know about Thirst (This is the first time I've actually had a potential title before the end of November! Yay me.)

What I do know:
Main characters - Though I don't know too much about them.
Main Conflict

What I need to know:
Sub-conflicts (Is this even a thing? It is to me.)
Supporting Characters
Terrain-- for both cultures
Main Character's Choices -- Consequences
Culture - One for MFC, one for MMC
Character Arcs - MFC, MMC, Ant.
Goals for Main Characters
What I want to write
I want mountains--Huge green trees and nature. Real nature, wild and beautiful.
Addiction- and the harsh reality/consequences
Reluctant Love- It's not fun if there's no falling in love.
Different definitions of family

Tomorrow the work starts. I'll update this page as I go along.
