It’s the day before NaNoWriMo!

My outline has been fleshed out, more character sketches made (characters keep on wanting bigger roles, don’t you know), iPod charged, playlists ready, snackies ready (bith healthy and the I-need-something-unhealthy-to-get-me-through-the-next-scene kind), and stationery ready.

Okay, it’s chips and rock candy. What can I say. I don’t drink.

As a side-note, I found that doing my outline in pen first helped me to work through problems more easily.

I’ll be using Scrivener software again and I’ll still rave about it to anyone who’ll listen.

The Ruon Chronicles

For those who would like to see some more of the inspiration I’ve come across for the books, you can check out my Pinterest board and YouTube playlist – both of which are still growing.

The Outrageous Plan for NaNoWriMo Day 1

I’m planning to start writing at midnight on october 31st, and then write and sprint until I need to get ready for work. Luckily I won’t be alone in this endeavour as some of the other JoziWrimos are also planning on doing this!

If all goes well, I’ll then hit 20K on the first day, which will get me 20% of the way there (as I want to do a double NaNo – 100 000 words again).

Nthato Morakabi – check out his writing! – is also taking part in NaNoWriMo this year.
