National Novel Writing Month: Tips & Essentials

Song of the Day: Let's Get it Started by the Black Eyed Peas

   Hello all! It's that time again! NanoWriMo is upon us! As a rule of thumb, I'm very selfish during the month of November. It's all about my writing and my characters. Please be gentle on me if you don't see me around the blog world. I'll try to still post the opportunities, but more than likely I'll be too busy writing. In the past, I've written some posts on what you need in order to be prepared for NanoWriMo and also what I've learned from NanoWriMo. I will recap with a brief list today, but if you would like to read a more detailed post, click the links above. Good luck to all those participating!

The Essentials:

1. Coffee (LOTS of it)

2. Flash Drive

3. Microwavable Food

4. Ice Cream (Okay, maybe not, but it helps me when I'm stuck, seriously.)

5. Music ( I like to make playlists of songs that remind me of my story/novel.)



2. Exceed your word count when you can (Remember Thanksgiving is during November!)

3. DO NOT edit.

4. Reach out to other writers that are also doing NanoWriMo.

5. If You do get behind, remain calm. You can always catch up if you really want to.

See you all at the finish line!
