Gearing up for NaNo

I love Camp NaNoWriMo because it hardly feels like we've finished before it's nearly time for regular NaNo again.  We have less than two months before November 1st, and I'm already getting excited.  I went into the online NaNo store and finally bought the travel mug I had my eye on last year (and ooh, look! they have new USB bracelets this year!) and made a $10 donation (gotta have that halo on my profile pic!).  I want a sweatshirt but I'm ever so confused as to which ones are available with a zippered front, and it's a lot of money to spend for something I might never wear (I don't generally like pullover hoodies).

I'm also working on revisions with the goal of FINISHING THEM ALREADY so that I can start a new novel in November.  I really need to start planning for that novel, too, as I have only the vaguest ideas of what's going to happen -- all I know is the "big picture stuff" that has to happen for the series, so I need to sit down and fill in the details of the plot.  Originally that one was going to be a novella, which it still might be, but I also might make it a full-length novel after all -- depends how much material I end up having for it.

I love that feeling of anticipation leading up to NaNoWriMo -- or, really, any time I am getting ready to start an exciting new project.  I can't wait for it all to begin!  As I finish up revisions on the first novel and start working on my preparations for the new project, I will post more about it!
