This is your last full week before NaNoWriMo starts. Sunday through Saturday. Yes, you get a Sunday and Monday as well, but sometimes a full week is what you need to scramble and get everything in your non-noveling life sorted out: what you’re writing about, what you need to do before Nano starts, all that grocery shopping and mass cooking and cleaning and laundry. Thankfully I still have a weekend and a half before Nano starts, but the last weekend will be eaten up by kickoff parties and general scrambling.
One big thing I need to do is catch up on my journaling before Nano starts. I just finished one notebook tonight and am starting another one tomorrow. I have a lot of catching up to do, including those two weekends I was gone for the whole weekend. That alone may take up half a notebook, but I want to be completely caught up in journaling by the time Nano starts so I can start clean.
Can I do it? I think so. It’ll take a little bit of writing every day, but I think I can handle this.
So let’s write. But let’s not write my hands off.
