It's not quite October, but I am definitely in the swing of Preptober!
If you're not familiar with the world of NaNoWriMo, just know that October is just as special as November. It's not just the time for pumpkin-flavored goodies and plenty of spooky treats, but it is also time to start prepping to write a novel in a month!
Prep... Tober... Get it?
I'm getting a jump start on prepping for my NaNoWriMo novel. I've been reading Save the Cat Writes a Novel for the past little bit, and the first part of my novel prep involves me planning out To Love A Tea Witch using this method. I've created a small spreadsheet for myself that breaks down each beat, with some extra tips, and I've left a space in the middle for all of my prep.
Want a sneak peek at what I've cooked up?
My apologies, but I really geek out for a good spreadsheet!
I am so excited to watch this novel start to take shape. Sydney's story is one that I have wanted to tell for a long time, and I want to make sure that I do her justice.
This is just the start of my prep for next month's NaNoWriMo! More is coming with the start of October, and November first will be THE day!
Just me, a paranormal romance author with big dreams and even bigger crushes!
