NaNoWriMo BOOT CAMP! Lesson One: PREPARATION MATTERS!

Okay! So this post that I have reblogged here is about NaNoWriMo November, but the same rules apply to Camp NaNoWriMo July. Just wish I had come across it earlier. Such great advice. Only days left till 1st July, but this is what I’m doing…for sure.

Oh, and I’m sorry, there’s a little bit of language I would never use. Forgive me and please gloss over it. The information is terrific!

OH, so you thought NaNoWriMo started in NOVEMBER, did you!?!
WRONG! NaNoWriMo starts NOW, RIGHT NOW!

The secret to success in this venture is PLANNING!!!

PLANNING, people.

“But I’m a PANTSER!” you say???

NOT THIS MONTH YOU AIN’T!!!!

Writing 50k words of aimless story you’ll just have to rewrite later DOESN’T COUNT.

You don’t want to go through the agony that is NaNoWriMo and then just have to turn around and SCRAP most of what you just sweated and bled!!!

Only newbies jump into NaNo without at least a loose, rough SKETCH of their proposed NOVEL!

And you are NOT a newbie, are you!?!?!?  NO YOU ARE NOT!!!!

You are a story-slinging, world-building, character-creating badass muthafucka who eats 3,000 words for breakfast!!!!!

YOU CAN DO THIS THING AND YOU CAN DO IT WITHOUT CRYING EVEN ONCE!!!

“But it’s so haaaaarrrrddd??” you say?!?

BULLSHIT!

GET YOUR SORRY ASS INTO THIS…

      Thanks, Teagan. Yes, I’m having a great time in ‘camp’. Doing NaNoWriMo really does motivate me to write every day like nothing else does.
      Although we’ve been away from home, busy and occupied with lots of other things, I’ve been able to keep ahead of the target word count.
      Have to say, I found this reblogged article very helpful to keep me on course too.
