2. Polished and spent lavish time on my two outlines using the Snow Flake Method and Phase Drafting. It was fun giving myself permission to spend more time outlining instead of telling myself it was just a distraction and I should be writing instead. This is the one time of year I don't have to feel guilty for indulging in back story and extraneous facts about my novel.
3. Reading more books, listening to more podcasts about writing.
4. Cleaned up my writing space and hung a word-count chart on my cork board. I even armed it with little golden stars at the ready for each time I complete a daily goal.
5. Took some pictures I hope to turn into banner art for my novel to be displayed in my signature on the NaNoWriMo forums. I'll post it here when it's done.
6. Ignored most of my RSS feeds in an effort not to overwhelm myself with the writing world.
I want to hear from you about your writing!
