NaNoWriMo: Tip Three

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.

Okay, so you’ve thought of a good idea for a book and now you’ve created characters that are readers can relate to.

Now it’s time to play the torturous author and put your characters in some unsavoury situations. You could have amazing things happen for your characters, but making them earn it first makes for good reading.

What if they were on their way to a new job, but their car broke down and their phone died? What would they do?

What if they were accused of a crime they didn’t commit? What if they could save themselves by framing somebody else, would they do it?

Give yourself 10 minutes to explore these kind of situations and get a sense of what interesting stories you can create when everything goes wrong for your characters.

What did you come up with?

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.
