NaNo or NoNo? How to Survive National Novel Writing Month
I’ve “won” twice now (with the final result of 2013’s efforts being released next month), and am already plotting ideas for this November. My approach has always been to try and get a synopsis down before the month starts, even if it’s still pretty vague, so that I can focus on the writing, not the thinking, during the frantic month of typing.
I have a writing retreat coming up in October, so I shall take part of that for planning time.
For anyone else planning to hit the keyboards in November… Good luck!
