Pre-NaNo to-do list

To do before NaNoWriMo starts:

1. Figure out a real conflict for my novel
2. Gather noveling fuel
3. Clean my writing space
4. Clean my Google Reader. I can unsubscribe to some of those blogs for November, right? I wish there were a way to mute a subscription since seeing an unread item drives me batty. In fact, it's all I can do not to tackle the 67 unread items in my job search RSS feed right now; I'll be up for awhile if I do that. Those can wait.
5. Attend the regional kickoff party on Saturday
6. NaNoMail my newbies to see how they're doing
7. Make writing schedule for each day
8. Make everything current on Wikiwrimo
9. Install Linux on Yoshi
10. Start writing at midnight the first

Whew. That's a lot.

I need to make a list like this too. I was just thinking about the various plot issues I need to resolve/ decide on last night.

Make a list. Lists are wonderful things. What are you writing about?

I'm not sure how to explain it. It's actually an idea I had for a Korean movie, so it's not so much a novel as it is a really long treatment draft.

Basically, MMC gets lost at sea. MMC's younger brother insists he's still alive, FMC doesn't know what to think, and everyone else assumes MMC is dead. FMC and MMC's brother have lots of strange recurring dreams about MMC.

That sounds lame. It sounds really interesting in my head though....

Only one hour and four minutes 'til NaNo on this side of the world.

*goes to make list*

I should make a list like this. Lists are fun because I get happy when I can cross things off. Also, I love (and want) your icon.

Lists are great that way. I'm a huge list fan. I'm an even bigger Post-it note fan, as every single roommate I had in college can attest to.

You can take my icon! The maker is mentioned in my icon section. All my icons are available for ganking with credit to the iconmaker (hint: it's usually not me).

I have a list of presents to knit on my LJ. It makes me sad how few are crossed off. Post its are nice to. I don't use them much for some reason. I need to find where I stashed them...

I was just looking through them. You have some amazing NaNo icons. :D

I collect NaNo icons. Actually, I collect icons in general, but especially NaNo icons. :D

Now go cross off some knitting items!

I will. Tomorrow. Because today I'm trying to knit myself a hat before my kick off party at six.
