Though not the best picture, that is my brand-new, sparkly NanoWriMo 2015 Kit. Why?
I read somewhere that ADD/ADHD people need things like tokens or the like when they finish tasks. It is a reward and a visual or tactile signal that whatever was worked on is done. I know it works well for me.
That is why my kit (see pic #2) includes a lot of creative miscellany. Stickers are my big go-to. They include special ones for milestones (each week finished, each 10,000 words completed beyond 50,000, special accomplishments, etc.). I have special pens that are supposed to smell good and look pretty to record my progress. I bought tracker notebook to put all that in (I love notebooks, especially tiny ones. I even bought a couple special ones, not included in sparkly fun pack, for jotting notes just for this project). There are sticky notes to write encouraging notes to myself. And last but not least, I have blank name tags. I intend to put myself on display by writing something like “NANO DAY 1 2000 WORDS” and sticking it to my shirt. In a nutshell, I intend to make Nano sparkle this year! In hopes I will get through the 50k minimum.by
