30 Days of PreWriting, Day 30   1 comment

Today’s Link: www.nanowrimo.org

First of all, if you haven’t signed up on the NaNoWriMo website, go do it. I’ll wait. Really. I’ve got time. The fact is, everything that I’ve said, and probably more can be found on that site. It’s also the way you win (by reporting your word count to the site). And, best of all, once you sign up, you get a whole forum of information and ways to procrastinate. At your fingertips! Plus, pep talks every week, not only from the founder of NaNoWriMo (who’s written over 10 books by now), but also from other well-known, published authors. Every year, I look forward to seeing which of my favorites is going to be pepping us.

And best of all, you’ll have an entire site full of people that are interested in nothing more than watching you succeed at writing a novel in November. And if you really, really get stuck, you can probably find someone who’s willing to procrastinate for a few hours to read your novel and give you some advice. Or maybe just tell you something random like “Add a talking frog.” You never know, but there will always be help.

  1. That’s what I really like about NaNo–other people in real time giving you encouragement on the PROCESS, not just saying, “Oh yeah, that’s a nice paragraph.”

    And what’s that about a talking frog? Hmmm… *goes back to check out where we can use it*

    Good luck with your writing!
