Last Minute Tips for NaNoWriMo

Here's a handful of last minute tips for NaNoWriMo:

  • Don't forget to read my first article:
  • Believe in yourself. If you're like me, you'll be plagued by self-doubt throughout November. It's going to be a rough first draft.
  • Don't get caught in rewriting. If you think of a better way of writing a scene, just write that new scene. Don't go back and edit.
  • Don't stop reading. I know it'll be difficult to just have to the time to writer your 1667 words a day, but also make sure you take a few minutes to read each day as well.
  • It's a marathon, not a sprint. Stick to your word count. If you fall behind, you still have a lot of time to catch up!
  • Just write. Apply the seat of your pants to a chair and write.
  • Have fun!

The journey towards 50,000 words begins with but one word...
