It’s October, and that means there’s less than a month until NaNoWriMo. I didn’t think it’d appeal to me this time around, but an idea has grabbed me and I’m going to let it run around in November. I’m also editing the novel I’ve been working on, and I’m writing up a biography of my grandmother-in-law. It sounds like a lot, but it’s been helpful to have a very different set of things to work on throughout the week. It means everything gets done slower, but the juices keep flowing (creative and editorial) and that’s a good thing.
Do you have tricks to keep your creative juices fluid? Do you thrive in the planned chaos of many projects or are you loyal to one project at a time?
For NaNoWriMo, I’m prepping with Holly Lisle’s Professional Plot Outline Mini-Course, but she’s got a lot of great hints for NaNoWriMo here. PenandMuse also has a great set of links to help you get through NaNoWriMo.
