30 days to NaNo

Filed in The Working Life, Writing

That’s all I can think of to post. Have been very busy, working past midnight at least three nights in the past 10 days. Not at home but overseeing production of the annual report at the colour separator’s. ‘Nuff said.

Yeah, I’ll probably NaNo again this year. Shouldn’t be hard. The trick is to just write every day of November and be a little ahead of the word count each day. Couple of other tricks I’ve found that helps – start at the stroke of midnight on 1 November and keep writing early in the day during the month, and break the writing into a few sessions each day. It’s easier to write three 600-odd words three times a day, and to have the first session early in the day when I’m fresh and before other stuff overwhelm me and zap my energy, than to sit down at the end of the day, trying to fulfill the 1,677-word requirement for that day.

I’ll be out of the country for about 10 days during NaNo month, but with my Dana, that shouldn’t be a problem, or an excuse not to write!
