NaNoWriMo: Tip One

This week I’ll be helping you prepare for the annual #NaNoWriMo which also starts this week. I’ve written 6 tips specifically for this, which will be posted over the next 6 days.

It helps to have a solid idea before embarking on writing a book, especially if you’re planning on writing it in 30 days. Otherwise, how will you plan your writing?

If you’re easily distracted by new ideas, it’s time to be disciplined. 

Write down your ideas. Brainstorm them for additional ideas. Read books, listen to music, observe people, listen in to conversations and allow life to inspire you.

Whichever idea gives you the most excitement, perhaps that’s the one to write about.

What will you be writing about? Post in the comments below.

Have you lived a life that would make a good book?

Are you eager to start writing about your experiences, but don’t know where to start?

This book will help alleviate your anxieties about writing and introduce you into gentle writing practices.

This book will encourage you to assess your past, identify the significant points and direct you to begin documenting your journey.

    I think I will retry writing my YA novel about the East St. Louis race riot of 1917. I may be up all night tonight reviewing the story’s outline so I can get started on it tomorrow, day 1 of Nano
