As autumn approaches, lots of writerly types start thinking about whether or not they want to participate in National Novel Writing Month (for more information on what NaNoWriMo is, check out <http://www.nanowrimo.org/>). Many of us decide to try but then flounder and fail. Many of us succeed but feel our efforts are a bit shabby. And many of us don’t sign up at all because of fear, perceived lack of time, or writers’ block.
Over the next few days and weeks, I’ll share some of my successful concepts for making NaNo painless and fun and get you in the habit of writing on a regular basis.
If you’re even remotely considering participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time or the tenth time, you’ve got over three months to adjust your writing processes so that you feel comfortable and confident that you can write an entire book in just thirty days. It’s an achievable goal, even with holidays and work and all the busyness of daily life, trust me. You can do it.
