Get a Jump on NaNoWriMo 2012: PreWriting Prowess!
I've talked a lot about prewriting.  But prewriting is kind of vague, especially for someone who is either new to noveling/writing, or even for a seasoned writer who just has never tried prewriting.  Or, you know, I bet there are plenty of folks out there who prewrite and just don't call it that.  But I thought today I'd share my prewriting process, starting back on September 8, 2012, at 12:30 am, when I began planning my novel for NaNoWriMo 2012.
OK, I'll admit it, I spent way too much time at Target picking up a pile of notebooks while poor Boyfriend waited in the cafe, and then I came home and agonized over which one to pick.  But then I came home and I wrote the working title on the cover.  Et voila!

THE notebook for my NaNo 12 pr

Suck it up, weenies! A short treatise on NaNoWriMo
It's October right now.  And that means every writer I know is buzzing about NaNoWriMo.  Is it a good idea, is it a bad idea, am I doing it, have I done it before, can I do it again, do I have time...blah blah blah.  Suck it up, y'all.  Nose meet grindstone.  [Insert hard-working cliché here.]

This might be a rumor or just something I made up, but I think there's a reason that they put NaNoWriMo in what, for many of us, is one of the most chaotic times of the year. American Thanksgiving ( and the holiday shopping and family visiting that this entails).  Finals -- or studying for finals -- for writers who are in middle school, high school, college, graduate programs.  Local and national Elections in the States.
And there are plenty of day-to-day things that come up wheth

Aurora Beam
Orion sways his hips to some unheard melody,
a beating of glass drums filtered through cloud cover and aspen leaves.
It calls wild children from beneath folds of inky blankets
and sheaths of midnight and nighttime sea caverns.
They throw flashlight beams across 2:00 am valleys
and mountaintop peaks untouched by daylight.
They make shadow puppet tragedies
and fairytales in the loose and wandering spirits of those fallen shadows.
The king of them all wears a crown of thorns
- broken and fallen constellations -
scenes not beautiful enough to be painted by Gods.
Casting glances,
like sunlight through moth wings,
they scream a silent and beautiful bloody murder,
painting the sky in translucent blood,
and bowing in lily petal and star dusted skirts.
Curtain call,
and the theatre is thrust into darkness.
