Accountability Monday: NaNo Prep in September

To keep ourselves on task with all the things (outside of academia and our day jobs) we’ve decided to join in with Alicia and her accountability posts each Monday. Usually, we’ll share our successes and failures from the previous week and upcoming goals. If you too need something to keep yourself honest, feel free to join in.

This week we haven’t had much of a chance to work on writing or reading; however, we have been thinking a lot about NaNoWriMo. After trolling the internet, we came across this awesome post on YAtopia about how to successfully prepare for NaNo. Not only does this post give excellent pointers about preparing for NaNo ahead of time, but it also provides some insight on writing during the month of November if you don’t have a lot of time (something we have a little bit of experience with).

So, if you have time, check out Alicia’s accountability post as well as this NaNo prep post and let us know: are you planning for NaNo ahead of time?

  1. I think you guys know I’ve been planning NaNo all summer. But depending on how long it takes me to complete my revision, my planning might not be finished enough to my liking. For example, I still don’t have a fully formed plot. Since it’s fantasy I need to understand my world a bit more before I get there. Six weeks. Totally doable, right?

    • Yes! We have faith in you, Alicia 🙂 Always have! You got this, girl. Also, who EVER has a fully formed plot? Like, we always think we have our plot worked out but then we’re changing our outline as we write. Le sigh…the life of a writer.
