Things I learned from NaNoWriMo


1. Plans will go awry.

2. ‘That’ and ‘just’ may add to your word count, but you’ll end up wasting time editing them out later.  In other words, don’t use FILLER words.

3. Write something every day.

4. Do not stop to edit until you’ve reached your 50k goal.

5. Friends don’t let friends NaNo without tea, coffee and hard liquor.

    1. I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo several times over the years, succeeded only once.

      I can relate to the post in some ways, and in others not. I’m not much of a planner, I’m more of a ‘fly by the seat of my pants’ author which is why NaNo can work for me.
