NaNo Prep

“Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless. Add what is essentially your own.”
– Bruce Lee


For some reason, you’ve decided to spend the next nine weeks preparing for NaNoWriMo! Guess what? You’ve found your people! Over the next nine weeks, commit to spending just 15-minutes per day preparing yourself and your novel to write 1,667 words on November 1st and for the next 29-days thereafter. Keep that in mind: this series exists to give you the best possible chance to succeed during NaNoWriMo in November 2017.

They say “misery loves company.” If so, then you should join our Facebook Group. Of course, we are kidding…mostly!! Each day’s post will be explored in-depth on Facebook where participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their experience of the day’s task-successes and challenges.

Keep the Conversation Going

In addition to the Facebook posts, there will be preview posts on both Twitter and Pinterest (where applicable). Join in the conversation and share your story!

Ending with the Beginning
