My Nanowrimo list…

nano_09_blk_participant_120x90.pngAs I said, DS, you’re forcing me into this. Here is my list of items to get me ready for Nanowrimo.

I actually went to Target today for the following items:

  • Printer paper
  • Brand spanking new notebook
  • Whiteboard for story boarding

What I’ve set up next to my writing chair:

  • First and foremost (because I’m an awful speller) Webster’s Dictionary
  • Thesaurus
  • All my writing self-help books (just-in-case)
  • Blue ink pens and yellow highlighters
  • Kleenex (just-in-case I write something sad–or just-in-case I need to cry over how freaking tired I am after working all day, cooking dinner, washing dishes, doing homework, kids baths and bedtime…uuhhh and then writing my nanowrimo story 🙂 )
  • Lots and lots of Peet’s Coffee, French Roast Blend
  • IPOD and headphones
  • Laptop
  • My most comfortable pajama pants–clean
  • Bookmark the Nanowrimo FAQ page

A few more items my very sweet husband will be bringing me home tomorrow.

  • Digital voice recorder to use in my car
  • Laptop Pad because I’m tired of using a pillow

There may be a few items I’ve missed but I still have a few days.


I almost forgot

  • Tequila
  • Lime
  • Salt or sugar (mood depending)

    •Kleenex ……..

    OMG what a gas! I am copying the Kleenex rant and sticking it to the wall. Just feel that raw emotion coming through… Aren’t ya glad I forced you to work through these issues now, instead of on day 12!

    1. You live in Florida, what time is it there? You should be in bed

      Does this list clue you in to what kind of an evening I had. LOL!
      Yes, I am prepared now–for sure–and I’m going to bed.

  2. Best of luck with NaNoWriMo! Definitely add coffee to the shopping list. Very much hope you are enjoying The Opposite of Love. When you are done, please drop me a line and let me know what you think.

  3. I feel so unprepared. I am going to have to get my room ready. Yikes! AND clean my pj’s and probably some underwear…

    1. I think I just bought the last one in the Bay Area. I searched and searched and found it today but it wasn’t easy. I started reading already and I think Chris Baty and I are from the same planet. I love your your like and don’t like list, funny how we read and write different things but our lists are so similar. If you don’t mind I will do a similar list on my blog–non-blog 🙂
      If I’m taking the time to make the list I might as well ‘not’ blog about it…lol
