Kelly Does anyone else avoid reading anything in your genre prior to or during NaNo? For me, I'm afraid that I might inadvertently copy some story line, action, or other part of a book if it's in the same genre, so I avoid reading anything similar before or during the month. On the other hand, during NaNo, I don't really have time to read, so at least I'm safe on that count. :)

Not preparing yet. Trying to get ahead in my homework so I'll have time to NaNo. I read all different genres which all find a way into my NaNo, so I don't avoid any books. I don't even have my NaNo plot chosen yet. I had it set last year and now it's changing. I do this every year.

Bre | 1 comments I'm working on getting all of my homework, swabbot things, and major housework done before November. That way I will be able to focus more effectively on writing and won't feel so stressed out with school and the like.

Right now I'm reading "No Plot? No Problem" by Chris Baty. I didn't get a chance to read it last year when i did Nano. And then I kinda forgot about it. I'm not done with it yet but its really motivational so far.

Karen Germain | 1 comments This will be my first go at NaNo, but like Pat, I have been reading "No Plot? No Problem." It seems to have a lot of good tips. I like the one about bragging so much that you can't possible back down from the challenge! Other than a few sketchy ideas and characters, I think that I am just going to dive in and see what happens.
