NaNoFeed: On the Eve

In the run-up to National Novel Writing Month, I’ve spent the last month interviewing my characters and figuring out a rough notion of the setting for my story.

I’ve also added a few more goals to the list for the month of November:

  • Post to the blog daily, even if it’s just a note.
  • End the month with a logbook of hours worked. Writing is now my second job, even if it’s not paying me money (yet). I’ve set a preliminary goal of 100 hours.
  • End the month with an agenda for my research party in December. Oh yes, and that’s another use of the Magna Carta exercise: what things do I want to know more about?
  • Spend money on my reference library. This is the first NaNo that I’ve actually spent money aside from cafe patronage: so far, it’s been a research trip to the bog habitat in Theodore Wirth Park (Minneapolis), and a $10.00 e-book about forensic facial reconstruction, that confirmed once more my own identification of the magisterial text in the field.
I love NaNoWriMo. In November, I’ll be counting the ways, right here. Stay tuned!

    Oooo, I’ve never actually spent money on my Nano other than swag and donation and cafe costs. Snazzy and fancy!
