This is only my second year participating, but last year wasn't all fun and games. It's a lot to take on. Here's my project for this year, and how I try to stay focused...
My NaNoWriMo breakdown:
Working Title - Reilly, book one of my currently titled series, "Whatever It Takes"
Genre - New Adult - Contemporary Romance
Goal - Completed first (very rough) draft by Nov 30
Current WC - 40K with an approximate 50K more to go
Challenges - Writing even when I'm not feeling inspired to do so
|Libation for long, brain-fart stinted nights|
|Cozy Leg Warmers for cold days|
|Lady Gray Tea and my Balsam-scented candle|
|I generally only eat once around 11:00 or so...I make it a good one|
What I use and how I do:
I couldn't stay organized without Scrivener
Or my story notebook, which contains sketches, notes, outlines, ideas, etc....
A few artists and the songs that help me stay in my story "zone" this year...
What keeps my creative juices flowing:
- HOT showers
- Wine...bubbles and more wine
- Observing - being out in public
Oh yeah, it's official...
