As of this writing, the countdown timer in my sidebar says I have 7 days and 8 hours until NaNo begins, and, well… this is me.

But there’s not a lot I can do about that in 7 days and 8 hours. I need to choose my battles wisely.

How about you, fellow writers and wrimos? Are you ready? What last minute preparations are you making?
