WHAT Am I Doing This Month (Preptober)?

For anyone who doesn’t know what I mean by Preptober:

Preptober is a season of preparation and anticipation for NaNoWriMo, which you can read about here or here.

I love this season of spooky vibes and getting ready to write, and this year I’m attempting a special Notebook Challenge.


You know all those notebooks you have full (or half- or quarter-full) of grand ideas you wrote down on the fly?

Yeah me too.

A whole stack of them.

This year for Preptober and NaNoWriMo, I’m doing a notebook challenge. I’m going through all my old notebooks and writing out or fleshing out some useable content to write in November. I’m really excited and nervous about what I’m going to find and how it will make me feel, but I’m more excited than scared. 

If you’re familiar with my process, you’ll know this is the most exciting part for me: the planning and plotting aspects.

On YouTube, you can watch me making notes for future stories: character details, settings, etc. anything I think I can use. A couple of times I got overwhelmed with how much I was finding, but then I remembered that’s what this stage is for…finding the material and mining it, not finishing it. 

It’s all good. 

I also have the privilege of hosting a World Wide Writeathon stream at the spooktacular hours of Midnight to 2:30 AM EST on October 23rd (that’s 11PM Saturday night to 1:30 Sunday morning for me)

Mark you calendars
