There’s only 12 days to go until the start of NaNoWriMo 2011 and I’ve been setting up our region, Ireland NorthEast on the Nano site. Looks like there’s issues with setting your home region correctly, so do make sure you do that.
So what can you do while you’re waiting for the mania of writing 50,000 words in the 30 days of November to begin?
1. plan your novel – pick character names, choose a setting, rough out a line per chapter of a plot, buy a new notebook and pencil.
2. stock up on freezer meals and takeaway menus.
3. tell your friends about this adventure and encourage them to join you, or at least not expect you to be available during November.
4. make a note in your diary of our Kick Off Meeting in the D Hotel, Drogheda on Monday 31st Oct at 10a.m.
I’ve got a title and some character names, so far, for my novel. How about you?
Hope to see you online or in person during November,
happy writing, Grace (ML for Ireland NorthEast)
