#WeekendRewind: How to Tackle NaNoWriMo: My Advice To You (Day 1 of Countdown) #NaNoWriMo #Writing

Continuing with my weekend of reblogs, I’m sending you over to Candice, host of I came for the soup… She’s returned from hiatus just in time to give you some helpful advice going into NaNoWriMo in . . . YIKES! Three days!

Honestly, I have to say, I’m a little anxious. I haven’t looked at my outline for my NaNoWriMo novel since May, and although I spent an entire month planning it, I’m not all that sure I’m ready to write it, mentally at least.

But Candice’s advice truly helps me with my problem of over thinking this whole 50,000 words in 30 days challenge:

Just sit down and type. Breathe, and type.

Perfect. Yes, there’s no such thing as writer’s block. We can do this!

Candice is counting down to NaNoWriMo kick off, and this is just Day 1, so you know there’s only greater advice to follow. Head over to her blog and check out other useful tips she has for tackling NaNoWriMo!

I came for the soup...

In less than a week, November 1st will be here, and a mass of heroes and heroines will be born from the typing fingers of those who have bravely taken up the challenge to write a 50,000-wordnovel in 30 days.

First, let me say congratulations for being brave enough to challenge yourself with this. I have participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for three years running, and each year I have come away with a fantastic body of work (that yes, needs editing and revision) that I can be proud of.

Now, let me clarify, I have not officially done the NaNoWriMo with the whole registration thing (which I totally recommend because they have some great rewards for those who complete the 30 days with 50,000 words or more.) Why? Well, because I tend to use any 30 day month, June being the month of choice…
