My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This a book about National Novel Writing Month, something I had meant to read before last year’s NaNoWriMo event but never got around to it. Basically is series of essays meant to help you stay on track and finish NaNoWriMo.
There are sections on tackling plots, surviving the forums, and staying motivated to write 50,000 words in one month. I love that the main theme is that whatever happens, have fun. NaNoWriMo is meant to be a fun writing challenge so that even if you don’t ‘win’ you still have a wonderful experience.
I especially enjoyed the interview with Chris Baty, the creator of NaNoWriMo. Essays are also pulled from Vision, a writing ezine, and blog posts from the author. I did find this ebook inspiring and do have some new techniques to try out with my writing routine.
