NaNo Prep, november nano

5 Days to Go Until NaNo!

Oh, my gosh! It’s just five days until NaNo starts! Yikes! I am so NOT going to have my full outline done in time. I think I write in too many details so my outline is outrageously long. I just don’t want to forget anything. lol Do any of you write a lot in your outline, or do you just do the basics of what you want to say?

I have eight chapters so far but I know that is going to get longer as I go along. I had this story written as nonfiction, but now I am changing it around to fiction and I am on chapter 5 now. I’m already changing so much and adding so much more. I think it is going to be much better written this way.

So, what is everyone doing to prepare for NaNoWriMo? I’d love to hear where you’re at right now and what your goals are before NaNo officially starts. Feel free to write to me in the comments!

  1. I wrote a chapter by chapter outline for a novella I’m working on with one of my writing partners, and if I ever have to do it again it’ll be too soon. I found that it almost killed the passion and fun for the story. So from now on we’re going to try to just write an overall outline and not go into too much detail.
    As for NaNoWriMo, I’m cheating a little this year and am typing up a handwritten first draft I’ve gotten done. I’ve had a rough few months and this seems like the best idea for me at the moment.
