National Novel Writing Month is really just around the corner now. Are you ready and raring to go?
I’m not sure about the ready or the raring. I think I’m good to go but the doubties have begun to creep into my head. This year has been busier than ever and the choice to join NaNoWriMo seems crazier the closer Nov 1 gets. But I’m determined to make it happen…mostly because I have a full story plan and am way too impatient to weather another 6 months writing a draft. I need this to happen soon or else.
Or else what, I don’t know, but I’m trying to keep my motivation up here :).
With that in mind, I’m gathering my weapons and planning my assault on NaNoWriMo. Here are a few articles with excellent suggestions:
- A few apps to make your NaNoing more productive.
- Have you got your concept in order? You really need to nail that sucker before you begin.
- Tips and tricks to get you through NaNo, maybe even with a smile on your face.
- More tips and tricks to help you kick NaNo in the butt.
My other two weapons of mass NaNo destruction are Scrivener and Snowflake Pro. Snowflake is a story planning software (I use it with Larry Brooks’s story structure in mind) while Scrivener is an all-purpose writing software.
I’ve got my arsenal and story plan…so maybe I can make this happen after all.
How about you? Are you ready to conquer NaNoWriMo?
