NaNoWriMo prep? #amwriting #nanowrimo


So, I’m looking at the calendar and OMG! ONE WEEK or so until NOV 1 !?

And I have done exactly ZERO prep.

Hmm. This will be my what, 16th NaNo? It’s a tool I use to relearn my “write every day” habit. Every year. I shouldn’t have to reset my writing habit, but real life and all that.

Note to self: think twice about taking another college course. My class has a group project that is taking more time than I anticipated.

Another note to self: What the heck happened to getting up at 4am? Sure, I’m not starting work now until 7:30a, but going back to getting up at 4a would give me a few hours of writing time. Or a couple hours after I get into a morning exercise routine (another note to self). Gotta get up before 5a.

On the bright side, I actually have fresh ideas to work on. Yippee! Okay, not 100% fresh because I’m using current characters rather than brand new characters, but hey, I already know them 🙂

Happy Writing!

Oh boy, here she goes again!

Author: Julie Holmes, author

A fiction writer since elementary school (many years ago), and NaNoWriMo annual participant for over a decade, I have been published in small press magazines such as "Fighting Chance" and "The Galactic Citizen". I write adult mystery with a touch of romance, mystery with extrasensory elements, contemporary fantasy, and epic fantasy, and I'm represented by the fabulous Cynthia Zigmund of Second City Publishing Services. My debut novel, "Murder in Plane Sight", has been released by Camel Press (an imprint of Coffeetown Press/Epicenter Press). In real life, I am a technical writer and empty-nester with a wonderful hubby, one cat (what writer doesn't have cats??), two dogs, three chickens, and more chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits than any garden should have to deal with. My garden, our hobby farm, and Nature's annual seasons are some of my muses.
