A Tip, A Trick, and Some Inspiration

Participant-2014-Twitter-ProfileNanowrimo is finally fully underway and with any luck you took advantage of this past weekend to pound out an incredible word count.

No matter how your month has started out, you can turn it around, especially if you follow this advice, offered by a combination of famous authors and less famous Nanowrimo veterans.

If you don’t see someone else credited, the advice comes from my own 10 years of experience participating in Nanowrimo.

A Tip

Don’t worry if you miss a day or two this first week. Instead, clear some time in your schedule this weekend to play catch up if necessary–or get ahead if possible.

A Trick

If you think you need to read what you’ve already written to get back into the groove, make sure you start on the last page you wrote. You don’t want to start editing in the first week of November.

An Inspiring Thought

“Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer.”
– Ray Bradbury
