Next Friday is the official start of NaNoWriMo. That leaves just under a week for the last bits of NaNoPrep.
For me, now that I have my notes and ideas organized and laid out in one convenient place, that means spending a lot of time doing exploratory exercises. Most of these are aimed at working out characters and character relations. A few of those have spawned new ideas as well.
I’m hoping I get a chance to explore and play with all of the ideas I have for now, but I also know that realistically, thirty days is not a lot of time to write. One of the last things I need to do for NaNoPrep is decide which idea to work on and which ones I’ll have to set aside for now.
On the non-writing side however, NaNoPrep also means getting my space and schedule ready to devote the necessary time to sitting and writing. My desk is cleared off and I’m hoping to prep a couple of light meals for lunches that can be easily reheated during the first week so I can hopefully get a good headstart for when other things inevitably get in the way later this month.
What are your last items for NaNoPrep?
