Just one week left until NaNoWriMo starts. For some of us this will be the last free weekend until December.  If you haven't started one, consider making a NaNo survival kit. Get all those must haves together and ready to go. Any 'must haves' you want to share?

Enjoy the weekend, and write down those plot bunnies. You'll need them next Saturday.

A NaNoWriMo Survival Kit? Never heard of such a thing. Oh now I KNOW I'm not ready to do this. *grabs paper and pen and starts making yet another list.*

I still don't have a solid plot!

My survival kit includes screen-dimmers, custom autocorrects and Excel spreadsheets, cases of Mountain Dew (in every flavor so my taste buds don't get as tired as my fingers do), comfy pants, and fleece blankets. My stack of writing reference books are already situated on my desk. Everything else is secondary.

I learned long ago to back up my work. I have my writing on a flash stick so I can take it to work with me, but if I post it here in DW then I can access it from any computer I happen to be at.

My Survival kit includes but is not limited to:

EmergenC (Good for keeping me from getting sick. I have all sorts of wonderful flavors)

Pens, pencils and paper (in case the Demonic PlotBunnyTribbles in my head start clawing to get out of my skull)

All my stories and reference notes I made when I first started this story many decades ago. (Some of these notes need help)

DVDs of Battlestar Galactica (since that is my fanfic universe) to get in the mood



Tiger Print blanket to keep me worm while I sit at the computer

Mt. Dew, Chai Tea or Starbucks bottles Dark Chocolate Mocha Frappuccinos to keep me awake.

MP3 player filled with inspirational music and soundtracks

I need to find the BsG Novels I tucked away in storage for safe keeping. Sunday might be the best day for digging around in there.
