I’m making NaNoWriMo my own, after freaking out about the date. Today here in Sydney it’s the 28th, with only four days to go before NaNo starts, and I find myself unready.
myWriteClub is a new beta site which allows you to setup writing goals to track and share.
Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences is normally applied as learning styles to the education fields, but it’s applicable across our lives, and as I’ve found, to my own work and writing processes.
I used to be a big plotter. I spent many days if not weeks on developing plot before “going in”. This year I’ve noticed a change in my writing process, with character development taking a turn at the forefront.
Provided it ends up balanced, I’m happy with the shift. December brings a discovery of my own tilt between the two, shifting the scales of my own writing processes.
Day 13 in the big brother house…
Sorry, wrong unreality show. Briefly, here’s an update and my learnings –
Over on my tumblr blog I just put up a post linking to resources I’m collating as NaNoWriMo helper posts – these come in two categories – the #NaNoPrep posts of October (which I’m still discovering); and the current #NaNoPeptalk posts being published.
I am taking any of these as I find them and reblogging or linking to them every day over November. To save you the time, here are the direct links to the tag searches, which will give you an index page of all these posts. You may find them useful for times when you get stuck.
It’s Friday morning my time – eta on NaNo: 40 hours away. With this looming month of torturous writing upon me, I have come to the slow understanding that my initial plans for writing during the challenge were scarpered a few weeks ago.
So, to achieve success, I’m rejigging those plans and objectives for the marathon. Because we own this, so we are at liberty to plan our own successes (possibly by cheating).
Happy new year, all. And that’s about all I’m going to say about that.
With the new year comes new intentions or goals (not resolutions, because I’ve resolutely been avoiding those things). And there are some changes coming too.
Over the past three weeks this blog has posted on the general subject of productivity. There have been many productivity hacks and methods discussed with quite a few links and apps shared.
Here is the index to all the posts, listing major topics and tools posted.
