Three days (roughly) until NaNoWriMo begins. 52 hours.
I am actually more prepared than I thought I was going to be...though still not as prepared as I'd like to be. But then again, I don't know exactly how prepared I'd like to be, so I guess I'll probably never be as prepared as I'd like to be...or something.
Anyways. I've been able to (almost) complete the character profiles for all of my Main or Secondary characters. I still want to iron out a few details about the separate POVs (to make sure they all sound like different people). Also, my MC is a guy, and I haven't really written from "guy POV" before, so...this will be interesting. I was able to find some pretty helpful articles though, and I can always consult my bros or male friends if need be, so we shall see....hopefully...
Also, I already feel bad for all of my characters...because I can be an insane person when it comes to writing...this about sums it up. Heh.
I have a small list of writing podcasts to listen to....probably should get to work on those...heh. I also really need to find some new "Writing Sounds"; aka I need to find some new songs/artists and mix them with some of my current favorite writing music and then create a new playlist.
I have a writing tips board on Pinterest, and today I went through that and pinned the charts/articles, etc., that looked like they would be the most helpful right now. I pinned things onto the board specifically for my novel, but there may be some things that you'd find helpful too, so if you're participating in NaNoWriMo this year (or if you need help with writing in general) then click here to check it out.
I'm about to start designing the temporary cover for Continuing Forever: Book 2. Of course, you don't have to add a cover to your novel on the NaNoWriMo site, but it really bugs me if it just sits there and stays blank...also, the title used above is only temporary....it's kind of hard to name a book before you've written it.
I'm going to be doing these NaNo updates pretty regularly during November (weekly sounds pretty reasonable). I also want to have a video version of most of those updates (hoping to film one for this one today or tomorrow), so yeah, that'll be fun if I'm able to get around to it.
Anyways. Off to design a cover and nail down a few more characteristics and organize my ideas/thoughts a bit more.
Good luck to anyone else currently prepping for NaNo!
Have a great day,
