I'm never ready. Some nanowrimo writers are excited for midnight to hit tonight and start typing furiously, high on book expectations.
Not me. I'm a leisurely get up, get coffee, think deep thoughts, more coffee and then start trying to get a daily word count of 1600-ish words to stay on schedule for 50,000 by the end of November.
Does this resonate with you? Let's aim to be slightly more prepared to jump in to nanowrimo!

Last day of NANOWRIMO! Hopefully you got some words done, added to your outlines, fleshed out some characters and had some productive momentum to your novel.
For my part, I have my habit of 200 words a day that I managed to stick to and plan to keep moving on, I created a full outline and created some characters.
Congratulations! You did it!
There's still some time to add some words 😉
