I cannot believe it’s been two years since I participated in NaNaWriMo. For those of you who don’t know, November is the national write a novel in a month. It’s fun but can be stressful if you are juggling a lot of things at the same time. The goal is to write 50K by the end.
This year I am using NaNoWriMo to finish the last chapters of Letters For Ellie. I am at 5500K so far and I am surprised at how much I’ve been able to get done so far. My plan this time was to 1) make time each day. Even if that means only 1 hour. 2) don’t edit as you go. 3) have fun and don’t be stressed. So far it has worked pretty well. I am also blogging about my experience this time and posting on FB and Twitter for encouragement and community.
Do you have any strategies for getting your novel written in a month? Good luck to all the writers out there.
