Mid Week Motivator: Nano Prep Part 4

image

In just a few days Nanowrimo officially begins! The next few weeks will be full of challenging creativity. Remember this is a marathon, not a sprint. While this a competition, this is not a race against others but with others.

Schedule your writing time. Whether it means getting up earlier . Some days you may have more time to write than others. Honor the time you have set aside.

Join local write ins. This will help you connect to other writers. Don’t forget the online community as well. Join in on the fun on Twitter by following the #Nanowrimo.

Most of all enjoy the process! You may find you have a first draft to polish in December or a head start towards your first draft.

So perhaps you have decided to participate in Nanowrimo. The next thing that your thinking is what now?

This is the time to prepare, outline, characters and plot. You can either plan or you can fly by your pants.

Some will prefer to use detailed outlines. Others not as much.

Maybe right now all you have a vague notion. A sentence beginning with those iconic words What If?

All you need right now is the rest of the question. This is your starting point.
