NaNoWriMo 2016: Dream Big, Start Small

Something Soraya (my mentor) keeps on saying, is how I should 'start small'.  Yes, I will probably see all sorts of wonderful things that other MLs are doing, and think that I should be doing them too.  But it is much better to start off with the basics i.e. the things I HAVE to do as part of my ML 'duties': hold a Kick-Off Party, one event per week during November, and hold a TGIO Party.  And (obviously) answer questions and be the 'face of HQ'.

A lot of things I see I discount anyway, because they are more suited to a physical location.  I think my region's writers may lose out, having an online-only ML.  But then I shake myself and tell myself that they'll probably all be too busy writing to worry about things like that.

I see other region's Twitter accounts where the ML posts EVERY DAY, and I wonder if I should be doing that, too.  Just a one-liner: a writing prompt, or a thought-provoking question, nothing too much.  I think I will investigate TweetDeck some more, so that I can schedule tweets throughout the week when I am working.

64 novelists homed and novel-announced.  And counting.
