Prepping for NaNoWriMo

This year's NaNoWriMo is going to be a bit of a challenge for me. Why?? Well, I'm a day person so by the time 5 or 6 pm rolls around, it's hard for me to get creative. Last year I worked noon to 8:30 pm, so I did my writing early in the morning before work.

Another difference between this year and last year is that I was in school and I was in the habit of writing an essay every two weeks. Since I'm not in school, I really haven't written much of anything on a regular besides emails. So I've got to get back in the groove.

I have been thinking about how I could get in as much writing as possible, here are a few of my ideas.
  • I could wake up an hour earlier every day and write a few hundred before heading to work.
  • Writing during my breaks and lunch will be good when my co-workers aren't pulling me in one direction or another.
  • I'll also attempt to write more on Saturdays and Sundays so I won't run the risk of getting behind schedule.

This will be my second year participating in NaNoWriMo and I'm both excited and scared at the same time. I wish all the participants luck and hope to see you at the finish line.

Happy NaNo-ing!!
