It’s Nearly NaNoWriMo Time Again

It’s just under three weeks until November, which means it’s time to start getting ready for National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo) again. Now is a good time to start thinking about what you are going to write and start planning it. After last year, when my first idea didn’t work out, I learned it’s always good to have a back up idea or two. This year I have two ideas floating around in my head. One is already planned out and outlined in Word, the other is more character driven, with no real plot yet. I’m feeling more motivation for the second idea, but need to figure out what my main conflict will be or it will have no direction. At least I still have a few weeks to work it out!

For anyone else interested in attempting NaNoWriMo this year, here some links to past posts I’ve done on preparing for NaNoWriMo:

A little about what NaNoWriMo is, and why it’s a great experience for anyone interested in writing.

A list of things to do to prepare for NaNoWriMo.

NaNoWriMo – Creating an Outline

I find creating a skeletal outline of your story before NaNoWriMo starts gives you a road map to follow during November so you don’t get stuck halfway through NaNoWriMo not knowing what to write next.

An in-depth look into creating character bios. I find this is a helpful way of getting inside your characters’ heads before you start writing.
