Last minute details

We’re getting down to the wire and I’m getting excited. There’s something thrilling about not allowing myself to write to prepare for the next month of craziness. That’s not to say I haven’t been writing other things, I’ve been working on synopses for some other books. But not working on the book I’m about to write when all the scenes are there waiting for me, well it’s certainly whetting my appetite. I suppose this is all part of the frenzy.

I still have a few things to do to get ready, mostly house related stuff like clean my office and catch up on some laundry. And I really need to go to the grocery store. I’ve got my crock pot all ready to go and plan to use that several times a week to make dinners easy. I also need to stock up on Diet Big Red, pretzel sticks and Tootsie Pops, my go-to writing snacks.

I find November an interesting month of choice for NaNo and I have plenty of things on my calendar already that could interfere with my progress. But I will focus on getting my pages down early so that things like Thanksgiving won’t make my word count suffer.
