Wow! We only have 30 days until the big event begins. That’s not a lot of time! The NaNoWriMo website has been reset for the new writing season. It’s a wonderful, exciting time on the forums.
I’m still working on finishing up my current project. There’s still quite a way to go with it and that’s starting to make me a bit nervous. I’m still confident I can finish it before NaNoWriMo begins. All of the writing is at least good training for the sort of word counts I’ll need during NaNoWriMo. Now my word count goal is 1,500 words per day. I hope I can hit that target with some regularity.
Fortunately, I have a ton of material already gathered for my NaNoWriMo project. I’m doing a complete rewrite/reimagining of a project I first started in 2007. I already have a so much written about these characters and this world. I still don’t know how much of it I will keep in this new version, but it’s there for me to use. While most of my attention is still on my current project, I am trying to come up with a decent title for my NaNoWriMo novel.

How are your NaNoWriMo preparations going? Do you have an idea? An outline? Are you working on building up your word count stamina like me?
