How to build a content calendar

I don’t really use a content calendar unless you want to count just making a note of what I am publishing on what day in my daily planner.

Also being as I have more than one blog, I think it might be a bit hard to do that. There’s 2 blogs I try to be sure I post something at least once a week (like this one on Writing Wednesdays, as well as something on my beauty blog. My Craft blog I post when I have finished a project, or when I find something I think my readers will be interested in (or I want to try at some point).

NaNoWriMo- or How to write a book in 30 days

 

Yet again another year goes by that though I want to, I don’t get to participate in NaNoWriMo; (Halloween usually gets me behind in things so, maybe by now I should forget about participating…) not to mention forget about posting about it BEFORE November as November is NOVEl writing month.  I have a couple of stories I started but got off track for a variety of reasons one of which was because I wanted to edit a page and that took a while to figure out how I wanted to fix it. So whatever it is you might want to fix in your story edit wise (and that wasn’t even spelling etc) DON’T~ Just write down notes of your ideas/story change THEN when you are fully done with the first draft you can place it in the ‘write’ spot.  Maybe even use a post-it and some sort of system for page number & paragraph it should be then include the post-it on that page that has yet to be edited.

Anyway one of the Twitter feeds sometimes gives you prompts to help your writing along in case you have writer’s block!

May I recommend  to use and

The Block for Writer’s Block

The Block for Writer’s Block

Writer's Block

It happens to us all, at some time or another. Me I’ve been going through it for awhile with one of the stories or 2 I had been writing.  You are interrupted and lose an idea. You haven’t been able to get to writing your ideas down as the story so you lose the story maybe you have the idea and notes for one but you just can’t think of an actual Plot line or characters.  Hopefully some of this will help us all out.
