There are about 48 hours left until the NaNoWriMo chaos begins. Channel your nervous energy into some writing warm up exercises. Priming the word count pump is a great way to keep the creative juices flowing into your story line during November. I suggest starting out with some stream-of-consciousness writing. The way it works: Let your inner monologue flow freely onto the page. Don't stop to think about what you're writing. Write each word down as it pops into your head. Because silencing your inner editor is essential to the NaNoWriMo process, stream-of-consciousness writing will help the words flow without sputtering.

Take it one step further and add some purpose to your writing. Keep the same free flowing frame of mind and funnel that into a story line. Pick a writing prompt and run with it. While filtering through prompts (you can find them all over the internet at sites like this one you might even find some inspiration for your plot.

Check back in on November 1 for my first post during the fray of NaNo!
