I’m still working on finishing up my current novel so I can start fresh with a new project in November. I’ve been making a lot of progress. The rush to finish this draft has also been great practice for producing the sort of daily word counts I will need during November. I’m building up my endurance by trying to write 1,000 words a day. Soon I will increase my daily word count to 1,500. So far so good.
Now I’m starting to think about other aspects of NaNoWriMo. The novel writing might be the only part we measure, but it takes a lot of work to stay in top writing condition for an entire month. Writing a ton of words means I won’t have a lot of time to take care of other less interesting aspects of living, like cooking meals. My crock pot is going to get a workout. To keep it interesting I’m looking for new recipes that won’t require a ton of prep work.
Do you have any time-saving life hacks to squeeze in more writing during NaNoWriMo? Do you have any favorite quick and easy meals for novel writing season? Give me some ideas so I don’t end up pretending left over Halloween candy is a balanced meal!
