I can't believe it's almost National Novel Writing Month... With a little less than two months left, it's time to start your NaNo Prep!!
How do I prepare?
I outline. I know some people believe that outlining is cheating, but I'm a firm believer that outlines can help keep you on track while blasting through 50,000 words.
I make a writing soundtrack. I can't write in silence or while watching TV, but I can write while listening to music. In fact, sometimes music can be a huge inspiration. Music has helped me fine-tune the emotion and the depth of each scene.
I decide on my daily word counts. NaNoWriMo happens during my birthday month and the holidays, so I make realistic word goals based on the days that I won't be able to write as much.
Here are some links from my previous blog posts:Advice From Authors for Authors
I wish you all nothing but luck and endless creative inspiration this National Novel Writing Month!!
