With Camp NaNoWriMo approaching in 4 days, I figured I would help those of you who are participating in the way that I know best. Advice-giving via this blog.
So before you plunge into the beautifully daunting task of writing a novel, remember:
Write first. Edit later.
Now I know I’ve preached the above before, but it’s still a great piece of advice to follow. Even better, it applies to just about every writing project you’ll ever undertake. Besides, you can’t edit nothing. So get the words on the paper. Worry about how everything sounds after. You have thirty-one days to write. You have all the time in the world to edit. A mild exaggeration there.
Obviously, I don’t expect you to follow everything I say or preach. You aren’t a child or a dog. You’re a writer. And hopefully, soon, you’ll be a novelist.
