NaNoWriMo is in less than a day. O.O I will not be starting at midnight, but early in the morning.
I thought now would be a good time to make a survival kit for NaNo. Watch Kat’s video!
If you’re too lazy to watch, here is the list of her needs for NaNoWriMo:
- computer, tablet, notebook–something to write on
- USB drive–to save work
- notebooks–for other writerly stuffs
- caffeine–coffee, tea
- food–quick and easy, unless your parents feed you :P
- candy–people DIE when they don’t eat candy during NaNo [plus, all the candy’s on discount now :) ]
- phone–to play music and/or time writing sprints
- office supplies–highlighters, pens, pencils, index cards, colored pencils
- things to keep warm in–Snuggie, fingerless gloves, sweatpants
I like Kat’s list, but here is my own version:
To write on. Duh.
I’m using this to outline and write on. I got it 50% off for winning Camp NaNoWriMo, which was pretty awesome! I love Scrivener, even though I just started using it yesterday. XD
I cannot write without music. But I have to turn it waaaay down, otherwise I can’t think. I’m using my phone to play music, so I can turn off my internet. I just got Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989, which I’m listening to right now. I really like it! <3
This is my source of caffeine. I do not like coffee, and tea is a lovely alternative. What can I say? I’m British at heart. XD I drink Tazo Earl Grey infused with lavender. It’s sooo good.
I heard people can die if they don’t eat candy during NaNoWriMo. I DO NOT WANT TO DIE!!! I’m going trick-or-treating tonight if it stops raining, but otherwise we have a giant bag of candy to eat from. I will be hoarding it.
I adore Nutella. It is a chocolate spread–how can you not like it???
That’s my list. :) Now on to the second part of this post: Halloween!
Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. YOU GET FREE CANDY. What’s not to like? This year I’m going as Piper McLean. :) Or just a demigod. At school, we had a dance, which was actually pretty fun. :D They gave us candy and other junk food and we got to dance. My best friend, Victoria [or Vicky] and I had a blast, especially dancing to “Shake It Off”–I love that song. It was way better than last year, wen they played a movie during it.
What are you doing for Halloween? And what’s in your NaNoWriMo Survival Kit? Tell me in the comments below.
