Four Days and Counting…


…until NaNoWriMo begins and although I feel my planning is not only coming along nicely, it’s fun.  That’s always a good sign, isn’t it?

I have a loose schedule figured out for myself:

Rise early (okay, so earlier than waiting until the MoH backs out of the driveway) at 7:00

Coffee and yogurt while rereading previous day’s work.


Morning inspirational walk to think about new writing (30 minutes).

Write until noon.

Lunch and reread day’s work.

Food blog, bathroom remodel, sister’s photo project, friend’s project, clean house, grocery shop…(well not all of it every day, of course)

Late afternoon walk (30 minutes)



Bed at 11:00

I’m sure there’s a snack in there somewhere, but I’ve decided much gum chewing will be involved to keep me from too much snacking.  Evidently, I have a proclivity to do more wandering down to the kitchen when I’m lost in this book kind of thinking, and the stairs are not a deterrent.  I can also feel myself wanting more than the 1-2 cups of coffee I normally drink in the morning which makes me remember college days and endless pots of coffee to get me through class, homework, work after school.

Another thought might be that with a split hour of walking each day, stairs, gum, ice water, and coffee, I might just lose a few pounds while this is going on.

Wouldn’t that be a perk?  Especially considering I’ve gained back some of what I lost the first six months of this year.

  1. That’s a great schedule, Kellypea.

    I’m trying to decide if I want to write in the DAY or at NIGHT during NaNoWriMo.

    I usually do my best work at night because there are way less distractions. But, during the month of October, I kinda switched over to a day time schedule because I had to get up early for so many different doctors appointments. And I also feel like writing at night is a very lonely existence.

    I guess I will cross that bridge on November 1st.

  2. Well after writing this up yesterday and spending most of the day working on connected things, today I woke up and have ZERO focus and motivation. In fact I just came upstairs to my Mac and am not feelin’ the lurve. Gotta snap out of it. Maybe I have enough in my notes to just let it rip on Thursday? So glad you’re doing this as well Meleah — whether morning or night. 🙂

  3. here’s hoping we BOTH have creative juices tomorrow!
