The key to a successful NaNoWriMo season?

I have finally figured out the KEY to NaNoWriMo  (other than preloading someone else's work and taking credit for the time they slaved over a hot keyboard, suffered over sticky keys, and pounded their head trying to make one cohesive sentence at a time regurgitate onto the screen)!!! 

1) Find and capture a plot bunny

2) Don't squeeze him or her too tight

3) Enlist aid of pirates if necessary

4) Quit looking at the clock to see if time's up for the night

5) Get someone else to do the laundry

(This looks like a likely volunteer, just don't tell him I volunteered him.)

6) Nose to the grindstone(s)

7) Peddle like crazy

8) Sleep when you can so the muse can inspire you!

Good advice all. I suggest that audits are to be avoided during the first week of NaNo. In fact, I suggest that audits -always- be avoided.

Just went to the Forums. I have such mixed feelings. I'm excited and dreading it at the same time.

See you there, though.

I need to figure out (remember) how I am listed on the forums ... we should buddy up this time around!

Crossing fingers the audit goes through quickly, easily, and not too many are shot at dawn.
