As exciting as Nanowrimo is, I find getting ready for it September/October time is just as exciting. You have the dash to the end of October but you also have the anticipation as everyone sorts out their character templates, lines up their inspiration speeches/videos/pictures and stocks their freezer with every meal that could possibly be cooked in under thirty minutes. And the weather is getting colder and Halloween is coming, so lots of spooky stories and movies coming out right about now. Great inspiration if you’re writing a horror novel! Not as much if you’re writing another genre but at least it’s fun.
I’ll be doing another post about what I’m doing to prepare for Nanowrimo but this post is simply about the resources I found useful to prep so far.
