NaNoWriMo Eve

Everyone ready for NaNoWriMo 2016???  Can you ever be truly ready for November’s Writing Contest?

YouTube vlogs, articles, podcasts – I’ve done it all.  And I realized only about a week or so ago, that October is unofficially called “PrepTober”.  I didn’t realize how much prepping you could shove into October for NaNo.  So I crammed it all into that last week!  Makes sense, right?  Strangely enough, I actually did a pretty good job getting ready.  I took last Friday off of work, sent the kids on the bus, and spent the next four hours working on my outline.  It turned into a 5 page, detailed outline of my plot and I’m super pleased with it.

I’ve moved away from working on “category romance” and this story will focus more on mythological fantasy/romantic elements theme.  I’m nervous and excited and ready to go and want today to last forever.  A little of everything?  Sounds like me.

NaNoWriMo is a contest to write 50,000 words in the month of November.  My manuscript is slotted for the 75,000 mark, so I’ll need 2,500 words a day, not the 1,667 that is required for NaNo.  I feel like I’m pushing it, but why not reach for the stars?

How are you all doing getting ready for tomorrow?  Do you outline or jump in feet first on the 1st of November?

I’ve decided to check in here throughout the month.  I’m hoping this will help keep me accountable!  So I’ll see you all soon!

GOOD LUCK ALL!  WE CAN DO THIS!!
