Ever since Kara over at Boho Berry posted her NaNoWriMo Bullet Journal video, quite a few others have taken the hint and made their own NaNo Notebook, myself included. It’s a wonderful idea to have a notebook full of inspirational quotes, plot ideas, outlines, and word count trackers.
In it she has loads of resources:
- Tami Cowden’s Character Archetypes for Heroes, Heroines, and Villians
- 33 Ways to Write Stronger Characters from She’s Novel
- Day -by-Day NaNoWriMo Outline from the Better Novel Project
- The Sixteen Personality Types from 16personalities
- The Seven Basic Plots from Wikipedia
- The Official National Novel Writing Month Website
So of course, being a journalling type person I had to make my own, and then of course it inspired me to attempt NaNoWriMo this year (even though I have no time for it, and am currently way behind, oh well). As I went along putting together my NaNoWriMo Notebook I added a few of my own resources that I came across:
- Create a “To Include at Some Point” List from Createspace
- Day-by-Day NaNoWriMo Outline: Characters & Themes from the Better Novel Project
- How to Create Character Motivations that Will Rivet Your Readers from She’s Novel (Kara mentions this in her video, but doesn’t give a resource)
- How to Write 10,000 Words a Day from the Sprint Shack
Are you attempting NaNoWriMo this year? Why or why not?
