NaNoWriMo is just 10 days away, so I thought I would do something fun to help promote it for all of my writing friends, and for those who aren’t writing yet but would like to become a writer. For the next 40 days, I will be posting a writing lesson per day to help you make progress in achieving your NanoWriMo writing goals.
Planning Your Writing
Each day for the next 10 days, I will be giving you steps you can take to plan out your writing. These steps should take you at most 2 hours to complete. I will be looking for your feedback in the 40 Day Writers Facebook group (which is free to join – just ask). You will be ready to go come November 1st when the writing really begins.Read More »The 40 Day Writer Challenge Begins
