You know, National Novel Writing Month.
Not me. Wish I had the wherewithal to make it happen. But, I never seem to get it together for NaNoWriMo. No matter how many times I think this will be the November for me, it never happens.
My life is and always has been like a crazy circus.
However, just because we don’t participate in NaNoWriMo doesn’t mean we can’t learn from those who do.
For everyone brave enough to go for the 30 day challenge check out this contest from Inkitt:
NaNoWriMo 2015 Contest
For those of us who pass, here are some tips from those who’ve been there and done that.
- The gallop draft: 5 smart tips for writing a useful draft at speed by Ros Morris over at Nail Your Novel.
- Chuck over at Terribleminds offers NANOWRIMO COMMISERATION AND CONVERSATION RIGHT HERE
- Jami Gold writes at Writers in the Storm – NaNoWriMo: Don’t Get Stuck
Now for the rest of us, give yourself a break.
Go shopping and have lunch with a friend. That’s what I did today! Explains todays late post.

I am participating in NaNoWriMo this year, my first time. Not questioning my sanity yet, but I will report back December 1st 🙂

Can’t wait to hear about your experience. I’ve not been brave enough yet.
