National Novel Writing Month - November- is right around the corner

Ah fall, time for football, homecoming mums, colorful leaves, pumpkin, and hours and hours of writing.

October is finally here and just around the corner is November which means NaNo time.  Writing 50,000 words in one month may seem overwhelming but here's a few tips that might help.

1.  You can start now by planning.
      You can develop ideas, characters, story arcs, outline, plan     
       chapters, etc.
       NaNo Prep has some more tips on their website to help with this. 

2.  Once November hits and you start writing, take breaks as you need them.
      Breaks help you clear your head and regroup - so use them. 

3. Ditch the distractions.
    Sure TV has geared up with their fall line up, but record & watch those shows later.
    Social Media is another time suck - albeit a fun one.  Just monitor time spent on it.
     Clean up or take care of projects in October before NaNo so that you don't have clutter
      or half finished work staring at you while you write. 

4.  Just write. 

5. Above all . . . have fun! 

                                                                 Happy Writing!
