So, I’ve decided against my better judgement to do this again.
I’ve won NaNo before, so I remember exactly how tough it is to finish. But I have no excuse not to because my Regular Job is a Regular Job and isn’t going anywhere and I have to somehow write anyway, don’t I? No?
Me, during final exam week: “I have so many novel ideas omg can’t wait to write”
Me, 2 weeks before #CampNaNoWriMo: *crickets* *tumbleweeds*

I have a sort-of idea. I’m trying to flesh it out using the Snowflake Method. It’s my first time trying it, so we’ll see. Being well-planned may interrupt my process, or it may help it.
So hopefully I at least have that ready to go by April 1.
I’ll also be using Scrivener since they offer a free trial to NaNo writers, and if I like it I’ll buy it because I have sooo much money to spend on things that don’t help me earn any money because let’s be realistic but anyway, I’m going to do these things, so shhhhhh.
Here is a list of things I want to do before the onslaught begins:
- Put the story outline in Excel (I heart excel because I am an Accountant!Writer)
- Put the Excel story outline in Scrivener because that’s actually what it’s for
- Finish thorough character sheets for the people
Wish me luck.
