For those of you planning to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, you have just under a month to get ready. Some of the things you can do:
1. Make a calendar ahead of time. I know someone in Austin who makes a huge calendar, and it is the cover for all her notes and scribbles; it is her organizer for the whole month. With this calender you can map out what you’ll focus on for each day, what you’ll eat, who’ll you’ll write with, and when you’ll rest.
2. Map out your plot and structure. Character studies‚—short or long.
