If you’ve managed this amazing feat, I’m impressed.
But not me, I break out in a sweat just thinking about writing a novel from beginning to end in thirty days.
Emails are pouring in for NaNoWriMo. Have you signed up?
Well, it’s that time of year, and the deadline is fast approaching. Almost time to start your engines, I mean computers.
If you decide to go for it, here are a few great tips from Bridget at Now Novel. The big takeaway from Bridget’s post is to plan, prepare and plan some more before you start writing.
Guess this is where I mess up. I’m a bit of a crossover between pantser and plotter, using a little of both to write a story, and planning is not one of my strengths. So for you super organized writer, good luck, and Godspeed.
But, if you’re like me and hives appear with the arrival of each email pressuring you to write 50,000 words in thirty days, check out the following post and feel better about deleting those pesky emails.
Laura makes some valid points. This is not for everyone. And if you’re worried about spewing out 50,000 words of crap, passing on NaNoWriMo might be the best decision. For me, I’m gonna go the way of the turtle. Slow and steady wins the race.
What about you?
Are you signing up or sitting out this year’s NaNoWriMo?
Have you participated in a previous NaNoWriMo? How’d it go?
Do you think it’s possible to write 50,000 words in 30 days?
Leave a comment, we’d all like to know your thoughts on NaNoWriMo.
