1 DAY LEFT?! When did this happen? Time went by so fast and I’m SO not ready to start NaNoWriMo. I’m still not sure why I thought I could complete 50,000 words in 30 days. I must have been feeling impulsive. Oh well, I’m IN and I’m doing it. To be honest, I’m actually excited about it. Yes, feeling nervous, scattered, and wondering where in the hell I’m going to find the time to write all this and if the story is going to come together. I’m a little more prepared than I thought I would be. I fully planned on winging it when I first signed up, but I actually have a rough plot and my main characters profiled out. My new notebook is ready (as I like to have a paper notebook/binder to keep track of my ideas, characters, etc.,) and I recently loaded the NaNo trial version of Scrivener – a writing software- and did the tutorial to get the most out of it. I thought it would be a perfect time to test it out and see how I like it because if I complete my 50,000 words I can get the full Scrivener at half price (not a bad deal). What else? Oh, I have some candy and caffeine, my new fingerless gloves for when it’s chilly, my favorite Disneyland mug that makes me think happy thoughts, some new music, and an awesome new haircut/style that brings me new perspective as we head deeper into the Fall/Winter seasons.
So the countdown is on. Already in some of the eastern countries they have reached their “midnight” into Nov 1st and have begun. I will attempt to keep posts as to my progress and word counts (as long as I’m making good progress- I really don’t want to embarrass myself- lol). Next for me is to relax, rest my brain and my fingers so they are fresh for tomorrow and enjoy the rest of my Halloween before the crazy begins 🙂 HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
