My NaNoWriMo Emergency Survival Kit

This is my very first #NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month


So, I’ve made an emergency survival kit.

And the very first thing in my kit is…


I absolutely love chocolate! I started eating endangered species chocolate, shortly after finding out I had celiac disease. I had to find some chocolate that I could eat. That was one thing I wasn’t willing to give up. I love the dark chocolate with cranberries & almonds.

It’s certified GF and NON GMO Verified.

Not only does chocolate make me happy, it actually has a lot of health benefits. It’s nutrient dense, it supports mental performance (I’m going to need that), and it reduces stress and anxiety (I need that too!) I think I’ll be eating a lot of chocolate this month.



Pistachios have lots of health benefits, one of them is a high content of vitamin B6, which helps in increasing the hemoglobin count in your blood. This oxygen rich blood is then supplied to the brain making it even more active. I’m going to need that!

GF bars and water


Water boosts productivity and ramps up brain power!

GF Snack Bars

I love Van’s chocolate chip whole grain snack bars and cranberry almond whole grain snack bars. It’s hard to believe they’re gluten-free, they taste really good.


Paper, Index Cards and Post-it Notes


Pens and Markers

I have plenty of pens and markers, if I need them. I’ll be doing most of my writing on my computer, but sometimes I like to sit in my recliner and write old school style, with a legal pad and my favorite pens.


My Favorite Writing Books

And the last thing in my #NaNoWriMo Emergency Survival Kit is my favorite writing books. These are just some of them. I buy books like most women buy shoes, so I have a lot of books.

I think I’m ready!


NaNoWriMo 2014

I’m participating in this years #NaNoWriMo


National Novel Writing Month

It starts on November 1st, my favorite month by the way.

Because it’s my birthday month!

I have 30 days ~ to write 50,000 words

That means I have to write 1,666 words everyday…Holy Cow!

 OMG…What have I gotten myself into?

So, the pressure is on! I’m going to try not to panic and freak out…Yikes!

On the other hand…this might be just what I need!

Wish me luck!
