It’s October 9th and I am cracking on with Preptober. I have found a new writer that does youtube videos and resources to help other writers, her details are below.

One of the things she provided was a Preptober booklet and a booklet for planning your novel. I have found these to be very useful and I am in the process of working through them to plan my project.

My issue with NaNo has always been planning, I don’t get enough in and so I run out of steam and then get too far behind. I am trying to mitigate this by making sure that by the beginning of November I have an outline in place that may not give me everything I need

I actually wrote the above a few days ago and since then I haven’t done anything. I mean for the past 3 days I have had a man cold and I don’t think I need to tell you how serious that is. But, I do need tog et to planning or I will just end up where I am each year with around 20k words and then running out of steam.

I will see if I can pull myself around today, but if not I need to get some good planning in by the end of the month.

Wish me luck 🙂
