If preparing for a writing marathon includes much time in the kitchen baking pies and much time in the music room composing, then Groovy is ready to go. I've already got music worked into novel number two. Now I just need to throw LOTS of baking by a dieting pastry chef into the mix!
I'll be working alternately on three projects:
#1. A YA I started in NaNo 2007 called The Molasses Swamp.
#2. A YA I started for this year's NaNo called Linear Equation.
#3. Something really spectacular (*cough*) for this contest.
In between writing I'll be at the piano composing tunes for the songs that go with Linear Equation and homeschooling my girlies and helping Mulletman keep the driveway clear of snow.
My only actual writing prep is researching mental illness. Other than that I am going to use the week after Christmas to eliminate distractions by finishing up a few naggingly incomplete projects and making sure my house is clean.
