  1. I just found this page via Twitter I can’t see the 10 tips but I’ve noticed your NaNoWriMo! Well done, that’s outstanding!

    I attempted this a while back but I wasn’t happy with my plot. I stayed up late to try & get the word count so I woke up late and seemed to spend all my spare time catching up…it wasn’t good. I gave up around 5000 words {if I remember rightly, that might be a little optimistic.}

    However, since then my life has changed to the point where I now feel that I could write about that and you have inspired me to attempt it again!

    Thanks!

    I’d be interested to know how you did it, what motivated you, what obstacles you overcame…

    • Hi Saffon, thanks for commenting!

      With NaNoWriMo I tried to do as much as I could up front (while I was still feeling really enthusiastic). There were days I did not feel like writing – too tired, too busy etc – but I forced myself to do it anyway. one day I had a migraine and only wrote 50 words but at least I wrote something.

      The truth is though that the hardest thing was that I didn’t have my whole plot worked out so I literally made it up as I went along. i got stuck a few times and people on Twitter helped out. Plus you can always skip to the next bit you know which I did a few times too. But the thing that helped the most was the realisation was that it didn’t matter if my plot was bad because I could fix it later, I just really needed to get the first draft out so I could work out where the problems were (and there were many, I threw out the whole beginning for example). I like having the core plot sorted out and work out how to get this character to there and how they are going to solve that problem as I go along.

      Good Luck! let me know how you go this year!
