Depending on which timezone you’re in, Nanowrimo might just be a few hours away. And here are a few things you might consider doing those last few hours before midnight.
- Cooking your favorite meal in bulk
- Saying goodbye to friends and family
- Water your plants
- Tidying up your desk/writing space
- Buying your favorite snack in bulk
- Stack up on tea and coffee
- Play with your pet
- Finish your current read

So to counteract this I’ve already done some of that stuff and my apartment is currently looking better than it has in a long time. We’ll see how long my messy lifestyle will keep it this way. but it’s worth a try. I’m sure my brain will come up with something new for me to do but I’ve at least tried.
Now I just have to come up with a way to ban the internet…
