Just a few more hours until NaNo starts. I’ve been chomping at the bit to get started. Of course, I spent most of the last week worrying about what software I’m going to use, rather than about trivial details like plot or characters. I ended up deciding on Scrivener, though Jer’s Novel Writer was a close runner-up. I really like its margin notes.
So I’ve got the Scrivener project set up. Chapter 1 is sitting there blank and waiting. Of course, I have to work tomorrow…didn’t expect that. Not that I’m complaining. Eating is a good thing. But it means I have to give up my “Start at midnight and write until I drop!” plan. Probably for the best.
I’m more excited this year than I was last year. And I’ve been thinking about last year’s novel, which I’ve hardly touched since. I think I’m going to break it out in December and get to work on re-writing/expanding it. I think there’s enough there to make a decent book. But we’ll see.
Anyway, wish me luck. And nag me if my word count starts falling behind. I’m aiming for 2000 words/day and a 60,000 novel.
