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

November’s posts will be themed to helping you with your book (even if not in participating as can be a bit stressful)
