NaNoWriMo Advice

My advice for writing a novel NaNoWriMo:

  • Outline, research, and work out your characters enough to let them guide you in your story.
  • Just write, don’t go back. It was hard for me, but I focused more on the word count and helped me put my inner editor away.
  • Get on NaNoWriMo for encouragement, because there more people in your shoes than you think.
  • Focus on day at a time, if you focus on the 50,000 word, you will get overwhelmed everytime.
