NaNoWriMo is coming up! If you, like me, tend toward the plotting side rather than the pantsing side, and the thought of writing 50,000 words in one month makes you begin to hyperventilate, fear not, dear reader, Readerly has you covered. For the plotters among us, and the pantsers who want to be them, Readerly will be sending out weekly planning tips beginning on November 1. We are jumping on the NaNoPlanMo bandwagon, and we are all in.
Here’s the schedule in case you want to make sure you don’t miss a thing:
11/1 Are you clear about WHY you are writing this book?
11/8 Do you know what your message is? Every book has one…
11/15 Do you have a firm grasp on your main character? Even if you are a plotter, you can’t have a plot without one…
11/22 The Cause: Effect Trajectory and why it matters
11/29 Change over time, as in there needs to be some or no one will read your book, not even your mother.
