After the awesomeness that was nanowrimo, I’m going to do what I did last year and take a break from writing any stories. I found that doing this and coming back to writing my stories after a month off, really revitalised me. I got straight back into it so I’m thinking, why break a successful formula?
Because it could be better, that is why.
In my month off, I’m planning on getting back into writing on this here blog and to reading more stories on the websites I’ve neglected over the past few months. I think it will be a good change of pace and although I do and always will like to write, I think my back and my mind will benefit from it. Because….
My mind can rest and take in others work and help to get it back into sharp and creative condition heading into 2014.
My back will love it as I tend to hunch over my laptop as I write and cause it to hurt.
Anyway, I’m going to get started on my grand plan but before I go for now, just one more thing,
This was my set up for when I completed nanowrimo. And I ask of it applies to you…how did you prepare for and get on with your nanowrimo?

I was fortunate to get all my research done in October for my novel for NaNo. Then got down to business: write, write, write. At times I had to review some of my notes and thought I’d never make it, fortunately, I take good notes.
Sounds good. I did the same kind of thing. Just probably with not as much attention to detail as you. Made a lot of notes re character and plot points and went from there. Came up with some things, important and not so much but still valid, to use whilst writing. Thankfully though, I’ll make any big edits when I finish it and go back over it. Thanks
