Other people are thinking halloween thoughts, I'm thinking writing thoughts...not just the story I'm going to tell, but my environment, too.

Went to the store for some last minute supplies.  Saw a small Torii gate, from which hung a medallion for tranquility.  I bought it. My stories are not in any way or shape connected to Japan, but if the powers that be who control writing want to give me a sign like that for the nano, well, I'll take it.

I've decided to attempt to do most of my writing in the loft, which is my space.  I claimed it for crafting, but I have a very nice office desk up there, and a computer that is not on the internet.

I will bring my phone with me so I can check my gmail and have access to google and wiki...that may help keep me off my browser of 40 + tabs so I can focus.

We'll see. 

I bought  snacks and water and this new energy drink with is made by the Reeds company (the one that makes such good ginger beer)...the caffeine source is green tea, and it's stock full of ginger...a can of instant mocha cappachino for those moments my tummy can't handle real coffee or I just don't want it...olive loaf and salami that I have hidden from son, and the only candy I got are apricot and apple thingies.  And only 1 small box.

I've never prepped this much on a story before.  I've had a good time with it already, and I am def ready to go.

I'm so excited too! I'm doing 15 minute word sprints starting at midnight, eastern time. I'll probably stay up all night and be online. Let me know if you want to join in. ^_^

I will probably be around. If things are driving me crazy, though, I might be at the system upstairs...(but it has no bathroom...I come back down and check my system regularly)

I understand. I've done timed word sprints with others and it really pushes me to write quickly. ^_^

I know...never did this much prep before...pages of reference material, lots of notes...munchies...a quiet place to write...rather odd for me...

Wow, that's some prep. All I did was buy chocolate and make a writing playlist five minutes before I started writing. (Yes, started writing. GMT+2 time. Already Monday here.)

Good luck with writing!

Hehheh! Sounds like you are more than ready to go! I decided to bite the bullet and go for it again, too. Maybe this will be just what I need to get back my writing mojo. I added you as a buddy--maybe your good habits will rub off on me. ^_^

It's a quarter to 10:00 p.m. here, and I am still deliberating between three possibilities for my project. I may spend tomorrow dabbling in all three before buckling down with one. This month is going to be quite an adventure!
