Tuesday Tips & Tricks

workstation-336369_640Can you believe we’re already in the second week of Nanowrimo? It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun–or when you’re freaking out about an upcoming deadline…

With any luck you haven’t actually started freaking out yet and your word count is soaring well above where it’s supposed to be at this point in the month.

Either way, I’ve got a tip, a trick and a quote that should help see you through to the other side of this crazy novel writing adventure:

A Tip

If you keep stopping to edit, maybe it’s time to turn your monitor off while you write–or at least tape a piece of paper over it so you can’t see most of what you’ve written. This will help your words flow more freely and prevent you from editing too much.

A Trick

Join the word wars/sprints and just have FUN. ~ Hedgymama

Some Inspiration

“It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly.”
– C. J. Cherryh

How’s your Nanowrimo novel coming along?
