For those of us embarking on the great National Novel Writing Month, we are going to be shamefully wicked towards our nearest and dearest for thirty days. Embroiled in frantically writing at least 1667 words a day, there is no question housework and other ‘family’ orientated duties will fall by the wayside.

Tonight is our last night of freedom – well until midnight anyway! How will you spend yours? 

I will be taxi driver for my daughter as she participates in her favorite celebration of the year, dressed as a Dragon Lady. This means I have the evening to set up my NaNoWriMo no-go zone. A NaNo calendar will be stuck on my desk, the story outline will take pride of place to one side of my keyboard and a large bottle of wine will be chilling in the fridge. Fuzzy socks and a comfy cardigan will await use in the early hours when the heating is low and a bowl of snacks remains unopened until hunger overcomes. Easy meals are piled up in the freezer for the family to cook.

What are your rituals for NaNoWriMo?

My Rumble soft toy will look over me from his vantage point and will surely join the creatures of the underneath tonight. Don’t forget to grab your own copy of his book.. http://www.dreamwritepublishing.ca/retail/books/rumbles-first-scare

Have a fun and safe Halloween...

  1. Like the sound of the fuzzy socks and wine and having time to write. How about coffee and Baileys as an alternative plus a uniform for evening better known as slackonners here! Love the atmosphere you created Mandy!
