My last novel, Finding Charlie, was my nano project in 2013, so I know it works.
Looking back over previous blogs, I found these helpful tips for time management:
- Skipping the news: I'm kind of obsessive about this, so it is going to free up a lot of my time, but it's also going to be really hard. I'm alerting all those close to me that I'm going to need an email or phone call if some huge news event happens. I already don't have cable so I got all my news off the internet.
- Pajamas all day: Okay, not every day, but some days. I'm kicking off day one in my yoga pants... that I slept in.
- Easy dinners: I don't pretend to be a fancy cook, but this month I'm going even more bare bones. No cutting meat or chopping veggies. If the recipe requires more than 20 minutes of prep, I'll save it for December.
- No more reading: I finished a book yesterday that I may blog about, but that's it.
