NANOWRIMO TIPS

NANOWRIMO TIPS - With November only a few days away, the reluctant novelist might want to consider National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO). What started out as a grass roots Bay Area community group has become legitimate cultural phenomenon. I have heard numerous testimonials that NANOWRIMO has helped aspiring writers realize their dreams. That being said, I haven’t done the NANOWRIMO program myself. But with so many overwhelming testimonials it’s worth checking into. At the very least you owe it to yourself to check out the page that lists published NANOWRIMO novelists. The goal is a 50,000 word novel that can be verified by uploading to the website. I have heard that a great way to get started is by using Book in a Month (BIAM) to complete scene cards, work through an outline, develop characters and the list goes on. If you are not anticipating major life changes (a new job, moving, a divorce, a new baby, etc.) in the month of November, give NANOWRIMO your best shot, your dreams are worth it, see the web link for much more information.

  1. Chad, I like your blogsite!! Nice holiday decorations--mine is so generic because I'm a pc idiot!! I've always wanted to try NANWRIMO, but I just neverhave the time. I've been trying fot two years to promote my first book and put together a collectionsof stories--all written--just no time to get it all set up. Way too many e-mails and prono--takes all my time. Tks for stopping by my site--come back soon as I'll always have a new short story up.
