Road To #CampNaNoWriMo : My Camp Supplies!


If there is a line of fiction I do not want associated with my preparation for next month's Camp session, it would definitely be the infamous "You are not prepared!" from the Burning Crusade expansin pack for World of Warcraft. With that in mind, I've spent the last week or so getting everything settled around so I'll have the best chance possible of completing SEALED WITH A KISS (or at least reaching my 50,000 word goal.)

Does anyone remember my review of BZRK? One of the big things talked about in that book was the idea of two different worlds, the "Macro" and the "Micro". I feel the same in a lot of ways about the logic I've been using to get ready for camp. For me, though, the Macro is of course anything that's gonna make me more comfortable here in the real world. The Micro, on the other hand, is anything that's going to directly effect my story where it's sitting on my PC. Today let's take a look at some of the things that will be helping me ensure that I will be able to tell Lucian and Carita's story.

Planning for #CampNaNoWriMo: The Macro

My Writing Books

It all starts here. If writing a novel were a feat worthy of  super hero, this would be my "Bat Cave". I am quite addicted to collecting books on writing and I have some real gems (and admittedly a couple duds) here. Among the ones I figure I'll need most this July are Book In A Month by Victoria Lynn Schmidt, Writing New Adult Fiction by Deborah Halverson, and The Art of Romance Writing by Valerie Parv.

While we're on the subject, please let me know if you'd like to hear my thoughts on these or any of the other writing books in my collection. I don't normally review non-fiction here, but I'd be happy to make an exception for this.

Sweet Treats and Sweet Stationary

I do about 98% of my writing on the computer, because the only thing I hate more then revision is coming stuff onto the computer that I originally wrote by hand. To try and make up for any pain that may cause me, we have good quality "bold" black pens and the cutest notebook in the history of ever. It says: "Give a Pug A Hug". <3

All of the sweets here are new or relatively new to me. The Laffy Taffy is what remains of two bags Jay brought when he visited the other week, while the Sweet Crisps are a discovery my mother and I made at WalMart. I still haven't decided whether I love the chocolate or the caramel more, but I know I love how well these compliment a cup of tea.

And here we have a completely new member to the Kat's Snacks family: Bear Paw Dipped cookies. These are pretty good, but I'm pretty sure I'll be switching back to my usual Quaker Dips granola bars in week 2, as these don't seem to pack enough of a punch in the "they make hunger disappear" category. They are quite tasty, though!

The crackers are both old favorites. I don't want to hazard a guess how many boxes of Original Wheat Thins I'll go through while writing SEALED WITH A KISS, but I'm pretty sure it'll be "a lot". The Ritz Bitz with Cheese are another personal favorite, although I must admit that I was bummed I didn't see the S'Mores flavor at No Frills this trip as I had my heart set on them since this writing project has the whole camp theme going on. Hmm... Maybe I'll have to get the ingredients and make real S'Mores later in the month as one of my writing rewards? We shall see. :)

And last we have an old favorite and a new addiction. I've had a love affair with Peanut M&Ms for months, so I'm not surprised that I decided to get them at all. But this kick I'm on buying Lindt's Dark Chocolate With Caramel and Sea Salt is something I wouldn't have seen coming in my wildest dreams until, bored one weekend, I decided to try it.

Lastly, here's one for my fellow Canadians! 

We all know that #NaNoWriMo involves massive amounts of caffeine, and if I'm going to get a coffee fix, chances are it's going to be from Tim Hortons. (Though if I want specialty drinks I prefer Mac's Milk--bigger selection, better prices.) I'm also a huge fan of all the non-chocolate Tim Bits. (I know..A Form of chocolate Kat doesn't care about. Blasphemous!) Either way, I'll be counting on family and friends to be feeding my Coffee and Tim Bit needs during the course of the event. Keep me motivated, people! <3

What are your must have items when writing? Did you put together a #NaNoWriMo Survival Kit? Feel free to share! :)
