Perennial Favorites: Seasoned Authors Share Their NaNoWriMo Secrets

I’m behind on my NaNoMoWri piece (and it’s not even a novel!)–ugh! I’m hoping their advice will help me out as well as give me a kick in the butt!!

For everyone who’s participating, I hope your stories are coming along smoothly 🙂

The Daily Post

Last year, we asked five veteran NaNo authors for their advice on how to approach this event: they had each leveraged their NaNoWriMo project into a published novel (some more than once!), and they all also happen to be active bloggers. For those of you participating this year, we’re republishing this roundtable again.

November 1st marked the start of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The annual fiction extravaganza brings together tens of thousands of writers every year, first-timers and pros alike, each committed to hammer out 50,000 words of sparkling fiction over the course of the month.

  1. I am behind too. Giving serious consideration to dropping out this time. I have so much other stuff to do this month too. I think I need to devote my time to other projects.

      1. *Hugs* I hoped my week off work next week would assist, but not when I am this far behind on other stuff already. I have two new releases in December and I really need to give them the attention they require with blog posts and stuff.

        There is also my cruise story to finish up and an 80k story to pre-edit before submitting it to my publisher before the end of the year.

        Common sense has got to prevail this time.

        I hate “quitting” but in this case I think that it is the best course of action. It is really just bad timing.
