One more week until NaNo, possibly the biggest writing challenge I’ve ever undertaken. I have an outline, I know my characters, I THINK I’m ready. I’m not as ready as I usually am, but I feel okay about that. We’ll see what happens on November 1st.
Luckily, I’ve been living the life of a full-time writer for the past month and a half. Time is helpful for a high word count. I don’t know if that will continue through November (RocketMan hopes not). I have just applied for a job with a local language center and my toes are crossed (I need my fingers) that I’ll get an interview.
There is also a week to go until Halloween. A fun holiday, but a lot of work for parents. I don’t love this time of year. I don’t like to be cold, I don’t like the smell of decay, and I don’t sew. However, both boys have costumes and don’t need me to sew anything this year – thank goodness! I am ready to have some chocolate in the house (NaNo fuel!).
What do you need to help you through NaNo?
If you don’t NaNo (or write), tell me your favorite Halloween memory.
