A Writing Journey

NaNo Prep: Clean

That’s right, clean. If you are anything like me, you let the mess in the house build for two weeks and then do a crazy weekend of organizing, scrubbing, and general tidying. That’s really not a good way to tidy your place (be it a single room, an apartment, or an actual house).

Okay, so what does that have to do with NaNo? Messes are distracting. Especially when you are facing a huge goal with a deadline looming closer with every minute. What do we do when we have deadlines? Procrastinate. Especially if we have a nice, distracting thing to clean, fix, or figure out.

So to avoid that distraction/procrastination, get it out of the way before November. Yes, of course throughout the month there will be other things that you have to clean, but if the big problems are out of the way, it will take less of your time, leaving more for writing.

EXTRA TIP: Make meal plans and freeze meals. If you are an adult or usually make your own meals, do so in advance. Even just knowing what you will make each day of the week (or who will be cooking it) will help you plan for writing. And, if you can do healthy, home-cooked meals, that will help your brain power!

  1. That’s probably the best tip for Nanowrimo I’ve ever seen!

  2. I clean all the time whether it needs to be cleaned or not, lol. Sometimes that’s not a good thing.
