Today is the last day of October…Happy Halloween everyone!
Halloween is also the last day before I lose my mind writing an insane number of words while drinking an insane amount of caffeine.
I have a few loose ends to tie up before I start talking about NaNo.
My binder! I have this binder full of stuff related to my various novels. I have characters, plot bunnies with varying degrees of planning and notes, potential character names, and random notes. It’s helpful and I love handwriting my notes. I like spreading out my notes and my characters, and it’s much easier to refer to them when I need to. It’s nice having notes that are organized.
I’ll be writing at home, at the library and the Living Room. It’s one of my favorite places, and I love writing there. The library is great too, since it’s generally quiet and I can go look things up when I need to. Plus, I can stay as long as I need without worrying about hogging a table or needing to buy something every couple of hours so I don’t feel bad about buying one thing and staying for a few hours. And at home, I can write in my pajamas with the t.v. on in the background and walk back and forth to the kitchen as much as I want.
I don’t have a handwritten sheet of how much I need to write each day, but I do have a spreadsheet ready. I need some way to keep track of all these words I’m writing and a spreadsheet worked really well last year, so I’m keeping up with tradition!
I don’t know what time of day I’ll be writing, but I figure it’ll be afternoon or the middle of the night…if it’s anything like last year! But I won’t know until I start writing, and I may find that I’m most productive at a completely different time than I was last year.
It’ll be a great month, and I’m looking foward to everything that happens next month!
