How I Prep My Novels (Step by Step)

This year’s NaNoWriMo was the first year (in a long time…maybe forever?) I got to:

1) Start a new novel on November 1 (In past years, due to deadline timing, I was usually having to finish novels or just make 50k words of progress somewhere in the middle of a novel)

2) Draft a novel (in other years I haven’t been finishing a novel, I’ve been a NaNo Rebel, revising instead of drafting)

3) Work on

Quotes by Jessica Brody  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can't get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don't care who you are. What goes around comes around. That's how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.”
Jessica Brody, The Karma Club

“I mean, how sad is it that I needed a freaking Facebook profile to tell me my boyfriend was no longer my boyfriend? As if Facebook is the official record keeper of relationships and you have to confirm all breakups and hookups with this sacred online registrar before you can consider them certified and approved.”
Jessica Brody, The Karma Club

“Forgetting who you are is so much more complicated than simply forgetting your name. It's also forgetting your dreams. Your aspirations. What makes you happy. What you pray you'll never have to live without. It's meeting yourself for the first time, and not being sure of your first impression.”
Jessica Brody, Unremembered
