NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is in on the third week. All of you are probably too busy writing your first drafts to be reading this, but I want to share some thoughts of my own NaNoWriMo experience.
So, here is the list of what I learned this week — and other general thoughts!
NaNoWriMo — Lessons Learned
- Having a goal and a deadline is very helpful! The goal of writing 50,000 words in a month is exactly the goal and deadline that has forced me to write during the days. A goal and a deadline have really worked for my writing-progress because I haven’t had the time to think about anything else.
- Reading the outline the night before can work wonders for the next day when you’re supposed to write that section or chapter. Reading the outline the day before doesn’t just help you prepare, you can also come up with new ideas or find out how to craft your ideas when you ”sleep on it”. Plus, I don’t have to waste any time during the morning when I’m most productive to read through the outline before I can get to writing.
