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!
