You thought I was going to say November didn’t you?
While it’s true that NaNo is all about November, what you do with October sets you up for success. October to a lot of Nano’ers is Prep Month. Where we get all of our ideas sprouting, our plots plotted, our research done, and our mental pencils sharpened.
Some things to keep in mind:
There are two NaNoWriMo info nights at the Chatham Public Library on Wednesday, October 19th and 26th from 6pm to 8pm. Myself (Danielle) and Laura will be there to talk everything NaNo, answer any questions you have, and you can get this years sticker from us!
Remember to sign in on the NaNoWriMo site at www.nanowrimo.org and home yourself in the Canada::Ontario::Chatham-Kent group. If you have friends that are doing NaNo in other areas and don’t have a group of their own, they are more than welcome to house themselves with us!
On the subject of prep:
Visit the nanowrimo.org’s prep page. (also a good time to make sure you remember your login and check that you are still homed in our area. http://nanowrimo.org/nano-prep
I’ve started a Pinterest board with links to articles and posts that I’ve found helpful in what to do when prepping for November and the 30 days of intense writing that’s coming closer every day. You can find it here: https://www.pinterest.com/dviolot/nanowrimo-prep/

After the early October site refresh, go to the NaNo site, make sure to update the Title, Synopsis and Cover for what you are working on this year. http://nanowrimo.org/dashboard
