NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow.
I’ve got a little book of notes.
I’ve got character sketches.
I’ve got support from fellow wrimos on Twitter, the NaNoWriMo forums, and even Ravelry.
I’ve got a budget for the amazing little Turkish restaurant down the street from my work, where I’ll be spending a minimum of two lunch breaks per week writing and eating gyros.
I’ve got a playlist on iTunes tailored to this story. (Key songs: “This Too Shall Pass” by OK Go, “If You Want Blood (You Got It)” by AC/DC, “Rabbit Heart (Raise it Up)” by Florence + The Machine, and “I Will Not Stand Down” by Johnny Cash.)
I’ve got a Sims 3 household of my protagonists’ family, in which their mom is still alive and won’t stop making godawful burned waffles.
And I’ve got a thorough outline of the main events and planned subplots of the novel, mapped out in the corkboard feature in Scrivener.
Bring it, November.
