Ultimate NaNoWriMo Survival Kit - Great Writing Tips

Day -13. NaNoWriMo Prep – Here are some of my favorite writing tools. Use them as a way to experiment with your idea. Work on plot with What-if or work backwards from the end. Write a narrative summary of your book. Change protagonists to see the novel from another character’s point of view. Clustering and freewriting are great tools to use whenever you’re writing. To see an example of a what if go here: http://debmcleod.com/creative-writing-coach/nanowrimo-events/nanowrimo-prep-countdown/

Day-4 NaNoWriMo Prep – Time to plot. Start by making a scene list. Put your scenes in some sort of order. Can you visualize the big scenes? Beginning? Catalyst? Middle? Climax? End? Plot them in an arc and begin to chain them together filling in what you know. Want to ramp up your plotting? Try Blake Snyder’s screenwriting technique. But adapt the movie beats to writing a novel. See how here: http://debmcleod.com/creative-writing-coach/nanowrimo-events/nanowrimo-prep-countdown/

"Even if a scene is going really well, I cut myself off so that I always have a place to start the next day." Such a good point.

Blots & Plots:How to Survive NaNoWriMo

Day -7 NaNoWriMo Prep – Focus your idea with a synopsis, book jacket or logline. A synopsis documents the emotional change in the story. A book jacket shows the hook and the pertinent plot points. A logline boils the story into a one-line description. Hone your idea before you write. For a discussion of all these methods see: http://debmcleod.com/day-7-focus-your-idea/ For a discussion of loglines, see: http://debmcleod.com/creative-writing-coach/nanowrimo-events/nanowrimo-prep-countdown/

Day-2 NaNoWriMo Prep – So what do you know? Research your world before NaNo starts. Let your internal editor look up spelling, idioms, expertise and strange facts about your character’s local or occupation. Use the five W’s to get started. Call an expert. Most people love to help writers. Be aware of the nitpickers who will let you know if you got it wrong. Want some basic research tips check out this blog…
