This week is the final push before NaNo comes. For the next month, it will be all about the word count, about getting through that first draft, of stretching and challenging myself to write without editing as I go.
I have several friends also working on NaNo this year. (Waving to NaNo buddies) I think one of the best things about NaNo is doing it with friends. Encouragement, commiseration, excitement and celebration. Strength to push on when you want to quit. Competition.
So, for this week, it is all about fine tuning the synopsis and outline, and trying to finish up the sample chapters for a proposal I'd like to send off before NaNo starts. Pushing on while waiting for the big push.
Are you doing NaNo? How are you preparing? If not NaNo, what are you working on and what is pushing you to get it done?
For the blog tour,
Oct. 26-30th I’m chatting with CJ all week at http://ponyexpressgraphics.blogspot.com/ about the road to publication, book trailers, and how our friendship has developed over the years.
