Accountability Monday: NaNo Prep Schedule

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.

To stay with our theme of NaNoWriMo preparation, we have decided to set a timeline that will keep us on track and ready to just sit down and write during the month of November. We have set some goals that will (hopefully) hold us accountable during the month of October. We intend to check back in each Monday (of the following week) and let you all know how we did with our goal! So…wanna know our NaNo prep goals? Here they go!

Week of October 5th: Create logline

Week of October 12th: Write Synopsis

Week of October 19th: Plotting

Week of October 26th: Character Sketches

*Some of these may overlap/change/extend depending on how we feel, yo*

Feel free to use our timeline and let us know how you’re doing when we check in each week!

What are you doing to prepare for NaNo during October (if anything)? Remember, check in with Alicia to see how she’s been doing lately 🙂


What We’re Into This Week: The Visit

In the hopes of trying to keep up with blogging after the end of RSW, we’ve decided to try and do a new weekly feature with Alicia. This feature will be something that we’re vibing on each week. It can be something BIG or small, dealing with writing or not, whatevs. Thus, this week, we’re into:

The BRILLIANT writing and pacing of the movie The Visit. If you haven’t seen this movie, GO SEE IT. We’re cheating a lil’ bit since we did see this movie over two weeks ago; however, it’s still on our minds. What does this mean? It was that GUD! The first thing we said to each other when we left? “UGH, that was the perfect plot for a book!” We really don’t want to give anything away so we’ll leave it at that, but for sure check out this trailer and then go and see the movie!

What are you into this week? Also, don’t forget to see what Alicia’s up to 🙂
