Last Minute Prep

Tomorrow is NaNo. In less than a dozen hours, I’ll be scribbling away in a notebook or pecking away at a computer keyboard, feverishly trying to get my word count in for the day. Okay, that’s maybe a stretch, because *checks clock* I’ll actually be at work in not-too-many hours, but you get my point.

I’m excited. I may have mentioned that before, but I’m more prepared than ever, and I feel good and ready. I’ve got the scenes plotted out, and I know I need to write a little more than a scene a day, and that each scene needs to be at least 1500 words. That’s a little neat and tidy, so I’m sure the actual execution will be messy as hell, but it’s a good starting point.

The one thing I haven’t done that I promised myself I would do is re-read Falling Apart. I swore I’d re-read it to get a feel for the voices again, and to remind myself of some of the important details (like eye color). I have started reading it, but there’s no way I’ll finish by tomorrow, unfortunately.

I’ll do my best to keep my blogging going – even minimally – throughout November. Are any of my friends here participating in NaNoWriMo?
