James Scott Bell has a great post about supercharging your novel with one exercise. The bonus here is it's about big picture stuff, so it's for plotters and pantsers alike. Super Charge your NaNoWriMo Novel With One Exercise
Bell also links to a fantastic article in that post, and I'm going to relink (that's a word, right? If not, IT IS NOW) it here:
Lisa Cron's wonderful article: Story First Writing Second
Chuck Wendig has a really great post on some quick tips for prepping: Welcome to NaNoWriMo Prep School, Word Nerds
Janice Hardy has a great post on Plotting with Michael Hague's Six Stage Plot Structure.
And finally, what good NaNo Prep post would be complete without a random generator?
I enjoy this one at Forward Motion. It's interesting and plot oriented without being so vague it's useless.
So there go you, some posts to get you ready!
How is everyone's prep work coming along? Are we all set? Panicking?
