November is for writers.
No, that isn’t some other lame T-shirt slogan (although, perhaps it will have to be). November is National Novel Writing Month, by which keen writers goal to creator 50,000-word novels between Nov. 1 and nighttime on Nov. 30.
The use of the NaNoWriMo website, members can monitor their day by day writing targets, earn badges once they meet note counts and broadcast growth. However the social motion has expanded past the nonprofit’s on-line group. Hundreds of folks give a contribution to the #NaNoWriMo hashtag on a daily basis, charting their growth and in search of pointers from different writers — although we see a large number of procrastinating, too. (You realize who you might be.)
We culled one of the group’s best possible comments for brand spanking new or suffering NaNoWriMo writers. Or perhaps you simply want some new methods and gear to dance out of that writing block. Those 12 pointers are a just right place to begin.
What are your best possible practices for Nationwide Novel Writing Month? Proportion within the feedback under or by the use of the hashtag.
