*click, click, click, click* That my friends, is the sound I hear from the keyboard of my computer. It is a sound that will become more prevalent the closer to November it gets. Why?
I plan on participating this year, just as I have since 2006. For the last few years I’ve managed to finish (and surpass) the 50k mark by the time Thanksgiving day rolled around. My hope is to be able to do this again. The family voted to have Thanksgiving at my house this year.
Writing and hosting Thanksgiving does not mix. The sooner I am done writing the better. (Or at least less than 1k away from the finish line at that point.) Not only will it be better for my waistline. I can relax and enjoy the start of the holidays with family and friends.
Do I have a story? Plot? Characters? Not yet. But that’s alright. I will by November 1st. In the meantime I’ve been reading, collecting images and sourcing new music to listen to while writing.
Are you participating in Nanowrimo this year? If so what are you doing to get ready for the event?
