Time is flying! Today is October 10th, which leaves three weeks until the start of NaNoWriMo.
If anyone is plotting or prepping beforehand, here’s a link to Holly Lisle’s Notecarding: Plotting Under Pressure.
I used this when I was doing NaNo a few years back. It really helped so I highly recommend it.
Here’s an atricle about writing a novel in a month. Write a Novel in a Month
A book and website you might find helpful is First Draft in 30 Days by Karen Weisner.
If I think of or come across any more prepping/plotting stuff between now and the end of the month I’ll post them.
And please feel free to share any of your tips and/or tricks for NaNo.
I’m currently working on character sketches for my NaNo project (both major and secondary characters). I probably won’t start my hard core plotting, however, until October 18th or 19th. I’m writing a historical supernatural thriller. Yeah, it involves vampires. 🙂
I’m still revising my vampire novella and just started drafting a new novella centered around Greek mythology. I LOVE Greek mythology.
Oh, and I also have my Tarot and Fiction Writing workshop which is just a week away on Saturday the 17th. I’m very much looking forward to doing that.
