NaNoWriMo preparation for November 2011:
1 September: "Ugh. Do I even want to put myself through that again in two months?"
Mid-September: "Hey, I could use that idea from a few years back... and really, what's November without writing a novel?"
6 October: "Okay. I am doing this novel, no second-guessing. None. I've got this all figured out and everything. Bring it, November!"
9 October: *waiting for November and trying not to pre-plan too much because my brain is like 'well, you have an idea, keep adding to it and working it out...' No, brain, that's what November's for*
12 October: "OHMYGOODNESS EPIC NEW PLOT TWIST IDEAS FOR OLD SCRAPPED PLOT!!! I could totally do this for NaNoWriMo!"
