NaNoWriMo Is Coming, the Ideas are Getting Phat

Please put a penny in your think-ing cap!

Oh man, I’m so sorry, I don’t know what’s wrong with me today. I think I’m still on a high for having had my MacBook Pro delivered to me today; it’s so sparkly and new and not completely bashed in and destroyed like the old one. Here, let me show you some pictures of it. What do you mean you don’t want to see them and don’t care that I have no a new computer? You should care, damn it! Well I’m going to show you them anyway, get over it.

Yes, I know it’s sideways. No, I can’t be bothered fixing it, not even with my new fandangled software or whathaveyou. I’m sure you get the prettiness even when it’s not pointing the right way.

Anyway, now that’s out of the way, it’s worth mentioning that NaNoWriMo is cresting on the horizon. With little over a month until it starts, writers the world over are frantically trying to get themselves in the right frame of mind, organise their ideas and just generally get a sense of structure about the whole thing.

If you, like me, are a writer looking for a little assistance in getting your pre-NaNoWriMo game face on, you might want to check out Abby Kerr’s (no relation, but awesome name, of course) site, because she’s created a very lovely guide for us all. Go get it!

Since my 30 Days of Writing blogs will be coming to an end shortly, I think I’ll start documenting how I’m following this guide (or maybe something a little more interesting, I don’t know; depends entirely on how incredibly entertaining I can be when talking about following steps in a guide). In any case, I’m a very happy bunny today because I have my new fandangle laptop installed with all the writing software I’ve been so sorely missing the last few weeks (Namely Scrivener, Write or Die, Ommwriter, WriteRoom, all of which you should get…also, all of which (with the exception of Write or Die) are Mac-only, so you should also get a Mac in some capacity, if you don’t already, and then you can be forever poor (but happy!) like me.), and I am ready to ROCK.
