And so it begins...#NaNoWriMo
It's that time of year already! Are you amped?
Come on, I know you are! NaNoWriMo is upon us, and that means 50,000 words in a month, 30 days, 720 hours, 43,200 minutes, 2,592,000 seconds. No pressure, right? :D
Well, only if you want to succeed! But NaNo shouldn't be about stressing out, or even a deadline. It should be about letting your mind and creativity run amuck!
I wasn't in the trenches last year, but I'll be there this year--and it's going to be great!
Here's some things that I found helped me when I did it two years ago:
1) Budget time - you only have so much in a day. Allocate when you are going to write and stick to it.
2) Limit Internet usage. Log on as a reward after accomplishing your daily target WC.
3) Let your writing flow. Don't edit as you go along.
4) First and foremost have fun!
