Hatch your plot in the form of your significant situation.

When I saw that I thought of "in medias res". Basically you don't start your novel with your character awaking and getting ready for a new day at work/school. Instead you start the action when the MC's boss slap the MC in the face. Or something like that. Because the getting to the action isn't interesting, while the action is.

I was thinking the exact same thing, and I often like to begin in this manner. I/ve read too many epic poems haha I use a lot of epic poetry elements just because its my main style of book I read.

Story Excerpt
Light glistened through sparse drops of early morning rain. Gently slanting rays of sunlight filtered through the budding shapely leaves of beech and farlin and hicora trees. The quiet clearing sparkled as water dripped from the newly blooming foliage of spring. The only sounds were the far distant echo of a vague melody, the unsteady plip of the vestiges of rain, and the constant tak, tak, tak of a scabbard's metal tip on rock.

Camalon sat wrapped in an oiled cloak, his knees drawn up and his leather boots flat on the protruding boulder. He wore a distant expression, the sword-hilt resting on one shoulder behind his head, as he continued to tap with one hand holding the tip of the scabbard and the other arm wrapped around his knees. It was two years since he'd come of age--the same two years since his elderly father had finally succumbed to grief and died. But Camalon had never felt alone. There were others. It was not the past that he pondered, now, but the future. In two years, he had learned and experienced much about the life of a hunter's swordsman. Before his parents had died, it had been Camalon's dream. Now, after pursuing it this far, he wasn't so sure.

"Am I afraid?" His voice was neither high nor low, though it was no longer a boy's. Camalon had not always talked to himself. It happened only after he'd started going out on the hunts and then coming back to the quiet woods of home. Somehow, he just felt the need to fill the silence. He continued to tap the rock with the sword's scabbard. "What do I want?" All he knew was that he wanted more, but, "I don't want to lose anything else." Tak, tak, tak, tak... Spring was finally here. He could finally go hunting again. Maybe that was close to what he really wanted. Out.

The last echoes of the distant melody faded. The rain, too, had already stopped. Everything seemed that much more silent. Camalon couldn't sit there any longer. Even the fresh scents of wet spring did little to distract his senses. He uncurled his spine and unfolded his knees before standing up on the boulder and sliding down to the ground. The cloak fell into place around him as he turned back toward the trail out of the clearing. Grateful for the sound of his footfalls on the damp earth, Camalon made his way along the trail he'd worn over the years, between the clearing and the house that was now his.

It was the familiar pacing along that path which, in the end, solidified the idea forming in his mind. One of these days, he thought, "I'll just keep on walking." If only he could convince himself to leave everyone behind. His resolution fell as quickly as it had risen. Such had been the manner of his thoughts, though not as defined, for some time, back and forth between the two great pulls on his heart: the familiar and the unknown. With a sigh, Camalon just kept on walking.

Hrm, I started my story already, no idea if we were allowed to do that...
If so though, I wouldn't mind being signed up, since my story is actually being posted on FOG in place of me not role playing on the forum. (:

TITLE: Random Occurence

DESCRIPTION OF STORY: Mainly it's a horror story about vampires terrorizing a particular city. The main characters that don't die is a girl named Odette who was an orphan who got shipped to a mental asylum and grew up there. Her romantic interest is the Werewolf who is a couple centuries old and bound to her by an oath his father had taken to swearing that him and his children would forever protect those with the blood of her great-grandparents, and though faint, it was still there. They later team up with a girl who had a pretty normal life up until that point named Alba, and it pretty much justs follows the group as slayers. :3

I haven't finished planning yet. I'm getting close, but I'm not there. Plus now I'm getting into the last month of my studies, so I have a lot to do there. So I'll post my words and such, but I won't be getting many points this first month me thinks.

Day Three: sort of half. I did more planning that writing, but I suppose that counts for something. I was kinda tired all day today for some reason. :/

Hit a setback. I got LOTS of planning done, though, so it wasn't really a loss, just a different sort of success. Good for the long run, bad for my fogathon. I had to scrap a bit of my writing so far, so I'm down to around 1,000 words instead of 1,500. It's definitely better for it, though. Hopefully I'll catch up. (Of course I totally won't, and I say that to avoid jinxing myself into not, even though I'm totally not superstitious at all, so that I actually DO catch up. Sneaky me, only now that I said this it probably won't work, so now it won't! There! Hahaha! Shhhhh.)

Edit:
Day Three: Complete!
Though I'm on Day Five, so I still have that writing to do. I'm back up to 1,331 words, though.
