It’s October! Which means it’s NaNoPrepMo! Which means it’s that time of year when I remind you guys about the wonders of NaNoWriMo and encourage you to participate in it’s awesomeness.
The thing is, I’ve written about NaNoWriMo a lot and I don’t really want to rehash absolutely everything, so instead I’m doing a round-up post of all things NaNoWriMo. Ready? Okay.
For those who haven’t decided on whether or not they want to NaNo, I have a post for you. For those who don’t click, I will say that I participated the last two years and totally loved it. I’ve written three manuscripts (or a good chunk of it at least) in NaNo-like settings (two November NaNoWriMos and one Camp NaNo), and the community and excitement and pretty graphs all make me very sad that I probably won’t be participating this year because I’m in crazy revision mode and will be for probably the rest of the year. So.
(But if you are not in crazy revision mode, I super recommend you consider NaNoing! Because it’s fun. And you’ll have a shiny new WIP (or part of one) at the end of it.)
Because it’s October and NaNoPrepMo, you will very possibly find this post on Pre-NaNoWriMo Tips helpful! Because prepping for NaNo, I’ve found, makes the whole NaNoing experience much easier.
To contrast two very different NaNo experiences, the first time I NaNoed, I made NaNoWriMo super difficult for myself by abandoning my first NaNo project on day fourteen and scrapping 24,000 words to start something new. (Yep). Then last year I went a little type-crazy and finished in nine days. Still not totally sure how that happened. Ehem.
I’ve also shared ten foolproof secrets to winning NaNoWriMo (which are actually not foolproof and please don’t do those things mmkay?).
And finally a compilation of helpful NaNoWriMo links that I shared on the first day of NaNoWriMo last year but I’ll give to you early! Because I’m nice like that. And pretty links.
If you have any helpful links for future NaNo-ers, share them below! And also, will you be participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
