In Which I Make an Awesome List and Expose You to Dora the Explorer

Whew, we made it! If you participated in NaNoWriMo, hopefully you won. I did and I am so happy about that. I did great for my first year. But now that you have written 50,000+ words in just one month, what shall you do with all this spare time?

I've made a list of things that everyone should now do:
  1. Get your social life back. If you're like me, you turned down lots of offers to do really fun stuff. Host a party and get those friends back!
  2. Work out. If you're like me, you sat at your writing desk eating candy all month. Let's make December NaLoAlThWeMo (National Lose All That Weight Month).
  3. Clean your room. If you're like me, your room is now a disaster. Go clean it.
  4. Do your homework. Damn it, I have an essay due tomorrow!
  5. If you finished a first draft, you need to go edit that piece of shit. I know my own NaNo novel needs to be rewritten like a mofo.
  6. Write another novel. Maybe a sequel to your NaNo project. Maybe something completely different. I have December to start a brand new project if I want. Or I can edit Enchant. But in January, I am starting Love in the Wild with Jackie.
  7. Prepare for next year's NaNoWriMo. I can use one of my ideas next year, and I think I already have a good idea which one it will be.
  8. Outline your other ideas. I'm going to do a loose outline for each of my ideas I want to write, like the outline I made for Enchant. When it becomes time to actually write one of them, I will make character profiles.
  9. Sleep. You deserve it.
  10. Go holiday shopping!
Congrats guys. We did it! Can't wait til next year!

See you soon,

  1. I love that we did it song. I used to sing it every time I accomplished anything. Remember? Haha.

    Congrats again.


Thank you for helping me reach my dreams!
