NaNoWriMo – It’s On!

Less than a week now to NaNoWriMo. Technically you are able to start writing at midnight “Saturday night). Anybody else scared?

I have been thinking and planning for this story all month. That has gone OK. Not great. Just OK. I’ve probably planned more than I have before any other NaNoWriMo, but I’d still like to do more. Mostly, I just want a real concrete story arc in place before I start writing. I’ll work out the details in November.

Allow me the chance to point you to the NaNoWriMo message boards. Use them. If you are in need of some ideas you can lurk there in the “Adopt a Plot” sections or ask a specific question about your story. I have (note that I’m hooch66 over there).

Most of all, do as the good book says and Don’t Panic. Save that for next week.

  1. Good luck. I’m a bit envious of those able to eke out an entire month to crank out a novel. I’ll be writing along with all the other NaNoWriMo-ers out there, only in a non-binge like manner.
    All the best!

  2. Though I have almost zero planning completed, I am not nervous or freaking out. I am surprisingly zen. This is just the type of thing that would put me in overdrive, but right now I am fairly breezy.

    I’m more excited than anything. I can’t wait to get started. I have big plans to get planning this evening. I know I’ll be happy I did it come next week…because I will probably launch into overdrive by next Tuesday.

  3. I don’t panic until week two. Saggy middles are no fun. And since I’m cheating and picking up on a project that already has 6,000 wds, I’ll be jumping right into that saggy middle in no time.

    Ok, now I’m panicking.
