For some it's a day of costumes and candy, but for me it's all about tightening up my plot and sharpening my pencils. In case you're not familiar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month when the goal is to write an entire book (50,000 words) in one month. To do so requires diligence, grit and typing like your fingers are on fire!
This is the first year I've been able to partake in a while because I'm usually in the middle of another project. While I've considered "shadowing" NANO by doing the word count but not be an official participant, it somehow doesn't work for me. In that situation I'm totally prone to cheating!
Before the midnight kickoff, I have to make sure all my ducks are neatly lined up:
*Working computer....check, check
*Writing snacks....check and double check!
As you can see, I'm all fired up and ready to keep my nose to the keyboard until this puppy's finished.
