Here we go again. Has it really been a year since NaNo 2009. It feels like yesterday.
One week to go and I’m preparing my work space.
I’ll need my IPOD set to my story Playlist.
My trusty Websters Dictionary and Thesaurus
A few other references books:
No Plot? No Problem
Struck and White ‘The Elements of Style’
Character worksheets so I don’t forget who I’m writing about.
Photo’s and descriptions of my characters.
My story beat sheet. Which isn’t complete, but I have all the important plots points penciled in.
Notepad (or several notepads 🙂 )
Fresh pencils, blue ink pens, and yellow highlighters
Box of tissue, for when I can’t handle the stress and decide to have a mental breakdown.
Warm slippers (It looks like it might be a rainy, cold November)
My favorite pajama pants–and a back up pair.
A list of stretches so I don’t injure my hands. And a stretch break program on my computer so I know when to take a break.
Lots and lots of coffee. Peet’s French Roast is my favorite.
I also need to stock up on groceries so my family doesn’t starve. That would be bad…
