NaNoWriMo Prep – Day 1 – 15 days until NaNoWriMo

I officially have 15 days (counting today) to prepare to write a 50,000 word novel as part of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo.

15 Days to Go until NaNoWriMo 2015

15 Days to Go until NaNoWriMo 2015

I checked the NaNoWriMo website to see what they recommended I focus on.  They recommend writers focus on three things right now:

  • Check out the NaNo Prep Webinar replay.  The webinar was held live a few days ago, but the replay is up on Spreecast.
  • Start reviewing workbooks to help you get mentally prepared for writing your novel.  NaNoWriMo’s Young Writer’s Program website has three downloads, geared for younger writers, but still really useful. You can download a PDF copy for free, or pay to have a printed one.
  • Commit to your win!!  Commit to finishing your novel in a month.  You can even buy the T-Shirt in advance – that’s confidence!

So – today, in between laundry and packing for my trip to London (plane leaves tomorrow), I plan to watch the NaNo Prep Webinar replay today.  Then tomorrow I can start to fill in the workbook and get planning my novel.

 

Tick tock….tick tock….
