This, is serious business.
(Yes, I know it’s the guy from Frozen. I hate him)
And because NaNo is serious business, a survival kit it needed! So my survival kit consists of…
My main tool for writing!
I always carry a notebook and pen with me and during November, I’ll have to be strict about this because you never know when you may have a sudden idea. An inspiration is always lurking somewhere!
This is a simple writing app that is FREE on Android phones. It’s probably on the Apple market too but I’m not 100% sure. I LOVE this app purely because of it’s simplicity and it’s automatic save function. So when I’m off the laptop and I suddenly have an idea for a scene, I’ll just type away on my phone and when I’m done, I’ll just copy and paste and send it to my email and when I’m on my laptop later, I can just add it to the re.st of my story. PERFECT for writing on the go!
- Story outline, notes, character profiles..
Because without these, there is no story.
Now I do have a memory stick but it is strictly for university because of the amount of work I have on there. I’m definitely looking into getting another for my stories but till then, Dropbox is quite a handy alternative.
Because you need to stay awake to write.
A must! A playlist enables you to keep writing and it helps you create the right atmosphere for the scene you are writing. I haven’t created mine as of yet but I still have tons of time before NaNoWriMo starts!
So that’s pretty much my NaNo survival kit, which is pretty similar to everyone else’s! What’s in yours? Is there anything different? Also, can you believe there’s only 18 (ish) days till NaNoWriMo starts?! Eeeek! I’m so excited! If you’ve made the decision to take part this year don’t worry! There’s still plenty of time to choose your plot and plan! Also, feel free to add me as a buddy! NaNoWriMo/@greenteaaddict
Also, I quickly want to say that I finally have 100 followers on this blog!! Eeeeeek! This is a huge accomplishment for me as I’ve never stuck to a blog this long and I’ve never had this much followers. I’ve never really been one to obsess over followers but to have this many people acknowledge my blog enough to follow it is just… brings a massive smile to my face. So thank you guys so much and I hope to continue to post content for you guys to read, thank you!
