The NaNoWriMo Writing Process (Sort Of)

  1. Think about your project for (Camp) NaNo days and sometimes months in advance.
  2. Jolt awake on March 31st or June 30th or October 31st because you realize there are X amount of hours left, yet you are wholly unprepared, despite all the “thinking” you’ve done.
  3. Attempt to outline.
  4. Throw away said outline.
  5. Consider starting another one.
  6. Stop outlining.
  7. With half an outline if you’re lucky or nothing but an idea if you’re like me, start typing.
  8. Convince yourself that you can’t possibly write X amount of words in one day.
  9. Somehow manage to write more words than you thought you could for an entire month.
  10. Finish and hopefully win (Camp) NaNo looking like you barely survived a vampire, werewolf, and zombie apocalypse.
  11. Throw a party…or thirty because no one is judging.
  12. Procrastinate for the next NaNo even though you know you shouldn’t.

I’m trying to be slightly funny and partially serious. I don’t think I accomplished either.
