How to prep last minute for NaNoWriMo
I've got two days. TWO DAYS to figure out things for NaNoWriMo.
I've decided to participate this year. It's going to be interesting seeing that I've been writing literary for the past two years.
For those who don't know, I started my fiction writing career as a genre writer. When I went to get my MFA, I quickly embraced being a literary writer. This year's NaNoWriMo I will return to genre.
The month-long write-a-thon is built more for genre writing. So many things have to be decided before you start writing. For some literary writers, me included, the discovery happens on the paper. I don't have time to meander like that. I've got 30 days.
So my goal, in reality, is to write something I can tweak later. Writing happens in revision so this is something I hope to be working on for a bit.
Seems I'm a literary writer after all.
Anyway, so this video below is about what I've done so far to prepare for NaNoWri. This is the prep edition before the chaos truly begins.
