Last November, I blundered into NaNoWriMo completely unprepared. My book on how to outline arrived, and I suspended writing while I read it and threw together an outline. I finished writing way late with a novella of 40,000 words. I've begun this November by really studying the book. My plan is to turn my 40,000-word novella into a trilogy of novellas, totaling ~120,000 words. By starting outline with the last chapter, I can see the theme for all three novellas. In each story, my characters will have a patent goal of finding/stealing treasure but will also have a latent goal of making the world a better place. For example, in Novella 1 they inadvertently lifted the "Forever Curse" which had for two generations turned their homeland into desert wastes. In Novella 2, they will trigger a slave revolt.
