I am making sure my notes are color coded, that I have my music ready on my cellphone, my headset, and a huge cup of iced tea. At all times. My only problem, other than the panic attacks that make me want to throw up, is that I find myself thinking "what if X character did this instead? Or what if Y place was really this place instead?" which is, knowing myself, going to lead to trouble and indecision if I don't stick to my notes. Sigh.
Also unfortunately, I have my life working against me...I have a day job and 2 kids...so my writing time, per day, is going to roughly be oh, 3 hours, if I'm lucky. More on the weekends if I can hide from my husband and pretend there are laundry fairies...and dish fairies. Luckily, there are also a couple of holidays where I can sneak in extra writing time. I hope.
So, how are you getting ready for November 1st?
