Nanowrimo prep season is upon us and I'm super excited to make a huge dent in my rough draft this November. Here's a look at the tools I'm gathering right now in preparation for the most wonderful time of the year.
My Nanowrimo Survival Toolkit for 2017
A writing buddy or two (find me on Nanowrimo! My username is Ashill).
Starbursts and Skittles
Story Genius for when I get stumped on a scene or need inspiration on plotting
Writing Down the Bones when I need to remember that the best way to learn to write is just to do it
Blank notebook for plotting, world building, etc…
New pens, because it’s fun
Stickers related to my story (because stickers don’t stop being motivating after grade school)
Mood board/Pinterest board for novel
Map of book world
A simple calendar to chart word count progress
Plot outline on real 3x5s (real paper trumps screen sometimes)
Copious amounts of tea and coffee
A goblet for drinking my victory wine
