Nanowrimo starts today.
All around the world nervous novelists are getting up early get the first precious words down in the scramble to write 50,000 words in just one month, but are finding themselves drawn to the internet instead. I know because I’ve been there, and because of the search engine hits I’m getting for progress meters and survival tips.
To make things easy, all my Nanowrimo posts are here. I’ve had to close comments on old posts because of the massive amounts of spam they attract, but do please leave a comment here, with a link to your blog if you’re blogging your novel or about the process.
But don’t fret about word counts, progress meters, tracking charts, just start writing.
It is a huge uphill struggle at the start but when you get to the end and look back on the month it’s a great feeling (sorry about the visual pun – I couldn’t resist).
Now disconnect from the internet and get writing!
