Well with only a day left before NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) starts (runs from 1 Nov – 30 Nov), writers all over the world are scrabbling to pull together plans, develop characters, create schedules or none of the above because they pants all the way.
Now I’ve never done NaNoWriMo (instead I do the 85K90Day challenge each year that starts on Jan 1st). So as far as tips go, I am probably not the best person to give advise.
(EDIT: I have done a stupid thing…and just signed up for NaNoWriMo… I think I might be crazy)
So I found some articles I thought were useful from other writers and thought I’d drop them here.
Check them out and don’t forget, if you like what you read, give those websites/blogs a follow, drop a like and a comment.
There will be a new guest post on Wednesday and then I’ll be back on Friday… just trying to clear up this never-ending headache.
To all those of you who do participate in NaNo, I wish you luck. Feel free to share your own wisdom for the coming month in the comments, would love to hear from you.
About Ari Meghlen
I’ve been a writer since I was given unsupervised access to pens and am unable to write anything shorter than a trilogy. I (now) live in sprawling Northern Ireland which is greener than the green parts of England with my awesome boyfriend and 3 demon cats.
I spend my time lost in imaginary worlds, running my online jewellery shop, taking nature photos or watching bad movies.
Visit me on Facebook or just leave me a comment on this blog. I love comments 🙂
Feeling shy? Don’t know what to say? Here’s an ice-breaker question for you to answer in a comment: If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
