Today’s blog post will be Part 1 of the last-minute NaNoPrep I’m frantically starting a week before November 1st.
Here’s some things I’ve done that I highly suggest:
1. Create a Playlist
Complete with Two Steps from Hell, Audiomachine, LOTR soundtrack, and a touch of Hamilton, I have a playlist titled “NaNo2016.” Also there might be a couple of Disney songs. I mean, “Go the Distance” from Hercules, and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan seem appropriate for a month of noveling craziness. You can check it out here if you’re interested.
2. Get to Know Some Characters/ Places.
I may or may not have created Pinterest Boards for some of my characters. And my main setting. Ooopsy. It’s actually pretty awesome, because now I can visualize them. Being able to see characters dress is one of my favorite prep mechanisms. Also, Pinterest is an amazing way to procrastinate when you have homework due in a few short hours.
3. Post on Facebook, Instagram, and other places. Annoy everyone you know. Tell them all about your noveling endeavor.
NaNoPrep Part 2 will be coming later this week.
Start stockpiling candy and caffeine, folks. November is coming.
