NaNoWriMo 2015 is near and the time to prepare has come…well okay already started. Hey! Better late than never right?
While planners are plotting and outlining, and pansters are hoping for the best, I’m there somewhere in between.
I typically find myself coming up with a general plot, the characters, and then I start a private Pinterest board for the story. I’ll take the MBTI test for my characters, do a little research, and let it set. Like a word stew, I put it on simmer for the whole month of October and when it comes time to serve…hope that it’ll taste good, er uh, write good?
I also do research on my character’s personality types and anything else I feel that needs my attention on (location, weapons, etc.). But outside of that, I pretty much let the story flow.
That’s of course just prepping for the writing bit. 😀
I don’t have a job outside of the house *hisses at driver’s test, hisses at uniforms, hisses at schedules* and since I live with my family there, my job is…THE COOK!
That means I have to plan the meals for the whole week, cook most of them, and come with desserts occasionally. That also means mother dearest has asked me to plan Thanksgiving and Christmas! I’m a little nervous, obviously excited, and well…honored.
Yes, it’s going to be a little stressful and a lot of hard work, but it’s going to be totally worth it. Of course my family isn’t the kind to just flop something in my lap and make me find for myself, so I will have help along the way.
What?! I couldn’t find a better gif to explain team work. Do you see those dance moves? Do you see how perfectly in time they are? Are you not amused at Captain Amazing, The Winter Sass, and The Fab!?
I am very amused mortals!
Anyway, time to hop off and start planning for Thanksgiving Dinner (and all of November’s meals).
