I'm super psyched about NaNoWriMo this year - and you know what? It starts tomorrow! So while I'm trying to get over the fact that it's already November, I'll also be writing my head off tomorrow.
Are you doing NaNo as well? It's going to be tuns of fun.
Throughout the month, we're going to have good and bad days. I'm prepared for the fact that some days I won't feel like writing a single word, let alone 2000. But hopefully I'm prepared enough, that I can get over that writers block and get back on track. Here are some places I find help and inspiration;
Imogen Elvis runs this amazing writing blog, which she's constantly posting new help and advice on. She's a really talented writer and is constantly inspiring me.
If I ever need a photo to visualize something, or simply to inspire me, I go to Pinterest.
One board I particularly like, especially for visualizing characters, is Kat's 'Everyone has a story'.
on YouTube. I love Taylor Davis' music, particularly her original, 'Awakening'.
It's such an amazing song, and I love listening to it as I write.
If I'm ever in a funk, I'll read a novel I like that is the same genre/style of the novel I'm writing myself. That always inspires me.
NaNoWriMo itself has pep talks from popular authors throughout the month. Make sure you check up for them regularly - they're sure to give you that extra push forward.
I hope this helps you through the month.
I have a little gadget on the side bar over there ----------->
so that you can see how many words I'm up to and how much progress I'm making with my novel this November.
Good luck to you all!
