Hi everyone, and welcome to Day 0 of PREPtober. Today is the easiest day ever. First of all, October hasn’t even started. It is tomorrow, so all you need to do is click the link below and opt in for the PREPtober calendar, so that we can literally all be on the same page. I’m so glad you’re here because I think a lot of things get done when you have momentum, and you have a group, and you have people cheering you and encouraging you.
Hopefully, this will be the month, or the year, that you finally write that novel, and you win the [inaudible 00:00:33], so you’ll notice once you download the calendar that it has a two page layout for the month, and that’s also because I tried to fit it into one page, but it was so tiny, and then I thought, what if you wanted to make notes, and I love making extra notes. I love writing, I love pens, I love paper.
I took a binder, and that’s what I would suggest, and stick one page into the front, and then stick the other page into the back, and you’re going to want a binder anyway because you’re going to want to collect all of your notes, character sketches, your plots, your scene outlines, reference material … because once you start writing and nano gets into effect, I promise you will probably forget details, and it will be so easy to look it up in one organized place.Today that’s all you have to do.
Tomorrow, I have a really cool book haul on outlines, and that is outline methods … so, Michael Hague, Cathy Yardley, Chris Voegler … I’m going to review all of those and let you know which ones I loved, which ones I didn’t love, and hopefully that will help you to determine what the best outline book or method is for you, and that will save you some time so you don’t have to research that.
