So. October 29. We’re….close.
For the plotters like me, having outlines to clutch to might make you feel secure. I wish I stood in that boat. A combination of law school stuff-and-such has resulted in me having no outlines and really hardly any idea what I’m going to do this month.
If any of my lurky readers are in the situation that I’m in, I suggest the following. First, take a deep breath. I know that you, like me, have procrastinated the fk out of this Nano. But the more you panic, the less you’re gonna get done. Second, we’re now at crunch time, so unless you can devote lots of time in the next three days, you’re gonna have to compromise your planning. Focus on what you can plan. Characters, settings, worlds, plots. Them’s all good. Get an outline together. Even if it’s “Chapter 3: Bob and Jim do stuff.”
Step 3? BREATHE. For serious.
It’s gonna be okay.
And I’m right there in the weeds with you.
Only a couple days to go and I couldn’t tell you whether I’m excited as hell or scared as fk.
Let’s get this shit going, guys.
November is almost upon us.
For the pantsers, time to make friends on the forums. For the planners, get those outlines done (or started).
And for those who want to have an epic day 1?
Come join us in the OA chat. Magic will happen then and there. Perhaps even miracles. It doesn’t matter what your day 1 goal is; if you want to be amazing, that’s the place you should be.
So let’s get serious. Nano 14 is happening. I’m actually disappointed that I’ll be million-ing again my 11th year, not my tenth, but I seriously cannot do it this year. So I wanna challenge and write with as many of you gaiz as possible this month. I want stories, I want legends, of how fking awesome we all are. And by we all, I mean every. single. one. of. us.
Legends, gaiz. Legends.
So, it’s that time of year again. Despite the crazy amount of Stuff I Must Do For Life Reasons, of course I’m overachieving again this year. Goal this year is 250k. I’m also gonna be racing for 50k on day 1 with a number of awesome people. If you wanna watch us go, come join us in the Nano OA chatroom (see the OA forum for a link).
In non-Nano related news, as some/most of you know, I’m a to-be-lawyer. I recently received and accepted an offer to work next summer at one of bigger law firms in the country next summer (with an eye to being a real lawyer there in a couple years).
Lets get amped up guys.
It’s Nano season. Best time of the year.
