NaNo Prep is here! Whether you’re planning your November novel down to the final scene, or soaking up inspiration for spontaneous story creation, we’ve got the tools you need to make this year’s NaNoWriMo your most successful ever. Today, author Eileen Goudge shares why a writer shouldn’t look for time, but should take long baths:
I was recently reminded, reading novelist Claire Cook’s inspiring (and hilarious) book, Never Too Late, that every author has his or her own “sure-fire” method for writing. Mine is simple: I commit to writing at least a paragraph a day. Almost never do I stop at one. In fact, once I get going it can be hard to stop. Try it. It works.
When I used to teach writing the question I got asked most often was, “Where do you find the time?” Good question. Where did I find the time? When my kids were little, I envied parents who worked outside the home. They got to sit at a desk that wasn’t in the kitchen. They could talk on the phone without a child screaming in the background. I wore shirts with spit-up stains to work. My typewriter represented the four food groups, with spaghetti sauce stains to go with the crumbs in the keyboard. And have you ever tried to type with a small child on your lap?
Along the way I learned a few tricks about time management, so here goes:
There’s two types of anger one is dry and the other wet and basically wet anger is when your eyes water and your voice shakes and I hate that cause I feel weak when I’m crying while angry I like dry anger when your face is like stone and your voice is sharp I guess wet anger shows that you care too much and dry anger means you’re done.

Erewaker’s orchard (levels 4-6)
Once a flourishing apple orchard, this plot of land was abandoned several years ago due to its high breach activity and now possesses an eerie quality of haunted neglect. The trees have grown strange, tangled, and half-rotted in their constant exposure to Otherworld energy, and drop fruit that few animals dare eat lest it bring them close to the dark burrows dug between the roots. A sweet smell of decay constantly hangs about the air; the ground is carpeted with a thick layer of fallen leaves which sometimes rustles strangely. Visiting Ginterghasts, particularly inexperienced ones, are often startled by the unusual number of small breaches found here — occasionally as many as two dozen at a time.
