Almost NaNoWriMo—Thoughts and Plans #amwriting #NaNoWriMo

To quote from Final Fantasy XIII: “Plans? Heroes don’t need plans!”

Yes, I will do something new for NaNoWriMo this year. I don’t have a name for it because I don’t know what it will be. I’ll start a new Scrivener project and look at the blank screen and start typing.

iPad handwriting recognition
Handwriting recognition (via WritePad for iPad) can get me started.

Or perhaps I’ll start handwriting, as I do quite well with handwriting recognition on my iPad (credit to WritePad for iPad)—it’s perhaps the best way for me to Just Start Writing. I’ll switch over to my Mac once I’m rolling, but there’s nothing like handwriting for jump-starting ideas.

In any event, my goal is 50,000 new words in November. They may not all be on my new project—I’ll likely keep on working on the interminable Novel In Progress as well.

To get the commitment going, though, I just created that new project on my iPad. See y’all November 1!

—UPDATE 10/29/2018—
Oh no! The PhatWare apps have been removed from the App Store! They still work on iOS 12.0.x, so if you have them you’re good, but they can’t be purchased or downloaded from the App Store any more. 😦 My bad.
