Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2015

I’ve decided to attempt NaNoWriMo again.

I have attempted it five times. I had been saying four but I forgot that first failed attempt. I have been successful twice but not in a row. Hopefully since I was successful last year I can keep it going, finally.

My reason for doing it is to get in the habit of writing everyday. I also like setting a goal and working hard to reach it. It is such an ego boost when you actually hit 50K words.

In preparation, I have been working on character development. I created exercises for my other blog that are helping me a lot. You can find them here. During November I post daily prompts there as well.

I am getting to know this main character and hoping that the story comes flowing when it is time to write it. I’m not a fan of outlines and I find this is a good alternative to that.

If you are doing NaNoWriMo 2015 feel free to add me as a buddy. You can find me here.

What are you doing to prepare for NaNoWriMo 2015?
