Last Minute Preparations for NaNoWriMo: A Checklist

Your Nanowrimo experience will be much richer if you study a copy of Larry Brooks’ masterful Story Structure Demystified before you begin. Check out my review of Story Structure Demystified.

November 1st.

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) begins.

If you’re in Australia (like me), it’s 8:00 am on the 1st. However, for most of you it’s still late afternoon or early evening on Oct. 31st. Which means I have an opportunity to catch you all just before you start pulling out your hair.

A few weeks, ago I wrote an article called How to Write a Novel in 30 Days, prompting you to decide whether you’d be competing in NaNoWriMo.

Because some of you are probably wild with anticipation, I thought I’d send out a checklist of last-minute preparations you’ll want to consider before you start writing.
