NaNoWriMo: Getting Started

It’s time! NaNoWriMo 2016 is officially here! 

In fact, as it’s been here for several hours, some of you may already have the opening of your NaNoNovel well under way.

If you’re a planner, now is the time when you harvest the fruits of your hard labour. The time you’ve spent thinking about your project, plotting your story and developing your characters in your mind and in your notes offers you a rich sense of direction as you jump in and build that word count. You may even find that some of your work lends itself to an easy adaptation as part of your work in progress.

If you’re a pantser…Wheeee!!! Here we go! Get those fingers moving across the keyboard, or that pen flying across the paper as you spill out whatever story lines come to mind for the main character you find yourself writing. Add characters and conflict and see what happens as you follow the twists and turns that unfold as you work.

Either way, make sure you sit down and get started! The world needs your story!
