This year, for the first time ever I am going to participate in NaNoWriMo!!! I am so excited and feel like I have been preparing for this moment all of my life (not really, haha. I will probably fall way behind and explode who knows?) BUT, I am just really excited to actually finish a story for once.
Since NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow, I wanted to set some goals for what I would like to get out of it:
- Writing experience
- A finished rough draft of a book. Don’t try to edit while writing, just brain dump everything and then go back through another time.
- Accurately back everything up so I don’t lose my valuable genius
- Have fun. This isn’t meant to be stressful, so don’t stress about it.
In preparation, I have a (nearly) complete plot outline (there are definitely some holes in there), and I have written the first 1500 words already because I already know there will be some days I won’t be able to write.
To you veterans: ANY TIPS, TRICKS, IDEAS FOR SURVIVAL??? Please let me know down below!
Also, let me know if you are participating. I would love it if we could all cheer each other on and be just the awesome community we are during this amazing month.
Finally, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Is Halloween celebrated in other countries? I’m really curious. Either way, eat lots of candy and fall into a food coma, my lovelies (then wake up so you can start writing tomorrow).
