Preparing for NaNoWriMo

I have been starting to prepare for NaNoWriMo already. I have been doing some editing of my previous nanowrimo books in preparation as I was thinking about being a nano rebel and working on adding to an existing work instead of starting a brand new book.

Last year I wrote 50,000 words of mixed fiction and commentary on the whole writing experience, so I was a rebel last year as well.

I am pretty sure I will stick to continuing my To Move the Stars stories with the goal of actually getting this series to the point I feel it is good enough to publish on smashwords and maybe even on create space.

I think I will write a mixed set of shorter works this year instead of one longer work. I am also considering writing at least one of these shorter works using Scrivener on the Mac. The one problem with Scrivener is that I use Dropbox extensively during Nanowrimo to both backup the work and to allow me to do my writing on different computers, and the other computers I use are not Mac's and thus don't have Scrivener.

We will see what I decide when November rolls around.
