Countdown to Nano 2009: Day 2 (Clearing the decks)

Well, technically it's 38 hours and 43 minutes until the mad white-hot writing begins. Planning should be on the downward slide and time left now will concentrate on preparing the writing environment. Clear the desks, get the files containing the daily templates in place, and bring the index cards and scene notes to the table. Yesterday was consumed by a severe neck/back spasm leaving me with a severe headache to contend with all afternoon and evening. Muscle relaxer and pain pills helped. Hoping they finish the spasm off today so my head is clear and my neck and upper back are relaxed and ready for the butt-in-chair approach to story engine dynamics. How about you? Are you ready for Sunday and Nanowrimo 2009?

I've never participated in NaNoWriMo. It sounds fun, but I'm too busy right now. Apart from my day job (teaching), I'm busy iwth my writing. CUT SHORT, the first in my series of crime thrillers, was published in the UK this year - and reprinted after just 2 months. I've been busy on a book promotion tour, and writing the second book in the series which is currently with The Editor (so fingers crossed!) I'm now planning the third in the series . . . and with 15 signings and talks between now and Christmas, I haven't much time for anything else! I hope you come over to my blog where I ramble about my experience as an author.
And good luck with NaNoWriMo!
