Welcome! It’s a rainy day, which always puts me in a lazy mood, with only two days left to finalize your preparations.
What does this mean?
Means I need to get into gear. I still have a lot of research to get done.
How about you?
Yes, my layout is, for the most part, filled in. Which is a good thing that way, as I write, I’ll know the track for my storyline to take to get to the destination I have in mind.
If you haven’t started? Well, now the time. You want to be as prepared as possible to be able to write 50,000 words within a month.
One thing you will need to do is plan out a calendar for the month. Mark off the days you won’t be writing. Due to family time and holidays.
Next, you will want to figure out the number of words you will want to per day to make your goal.
Winning NaNoWriMo is possible. It’s not easy. It will require a lot of commitment, but you can do it.
No matter if you write your outline on index cards or in a notebook. You want to leave room for ideas and notes as you move forward. Plus, the more research you can accomplish before you start, the more time it leaves you to write.
Don’t worry about having it perfect. You can change, add, or delete things in the editing process. The main goal is to get the story told. If you get from the beginning to the end with only 50,000 words, you can always add more after the fact.
It can be a fun challenge. Good luck. I hope you make your goal.
