What I did on my Pre-NaNo Day

Well, last Wednesday I managed to make my plan of attack for NaNoWriMo. I am steadily working on the steps on this list in order to prepare myself for the November NaNoWriMo challenge.

  1. Create and post a mass facebook note letting people know what I am doing, and that I will not be available often for anything other than work and writing throughout the month of November.
  2. Plan how I will use my vacation to further my word count. I will be away for a few days and will not be writing on those days, but I have a few days that I can set aside from that vacation to work on NaNoWriMo.
  3. Updates on this blog, letting readers know what is going on, goals I have reached, etc.
  4. Deciding exactly what I will be writing.
  5. Creating a NaNoWriMo 2012 notebook: With minimal notes, character sketches, story ideas, research information – all on the most basic level to leave room for full creativity.
  6. Plan and collect items for my Survival Kit.
  7. Set up my workspace at the table, knowing full well that the bed is where I will be propping myself up to work most of the time.
  8. Join the NaNoWriMo facebook page for Maine. I am already a member of the main page 🙂
  9. Update my NaNoWriMo information.
  10. Set up this years document on the laptop in a NaNoWriMo folder… without adding anything to it until the 1st

There you go! My plan of attack LOL.

  3. Well, you’re much more organized than me. I’m still waffling on whether I’m doing nano or not…. I certainly wouldn’t do 50k, anyway. xD
    Bravo and good luck!
