It's NaNoPrep time! This year, NaNoWriMo is coinciding nicely with a project that I've been contemplating/looking forward to working on.

I'm spending October planning and brainstorming and outlining. This pre-drafting stage is my favorite part of writing and I tend to rush through it, especially the brainstorming part. It's a shame, especially since I get the best ideas during this stage. So this month, I'm attempting to take it slow and enjoy the process.

  • vacation!: the spousebot and i spent a handful of days on hawaii's big island, exploring, eating, and, in my case, taking an obscene amount of naps
  • ascending mauna kea: hawaii's tallest mountain (14000ft) is home to the world's largest telescopes & incredible views of the night sky
  • the #amwritingchallenge on instagram: i didn't participate everyday, but i enjoyed seeing all the posts and feeling lots of love from the writing community
2 obsessions
  • fantasy life: such a fun game! i liked the hunter job the best.
  • thriller novels: something about being on vacation makes me crave fast pacing, smart detectives, and heinous villains
1 looking forward to
  • the spousebot & i celebrating our 5th anniversary!
