Question about NaNoWriMo
What level of prep work is allowed for NaNoWriMo? Am I allowed to spend October plotting? developing characters/setting? Outlining?

Or do I need to start November with a blank page?

Pretty sure you can do any amount of prepwork as long as none of the text proper ends up in the novel.

Apparently the only thing you cannot do before November is write the story. Plotting and research are encouraged. The official rules encourage giving your work a title or brief synopsis.
