For those of you who are doing NaNo this year, here are a few links:
No Plot? No Problem!: Chris Baty’s book on getting through NaNo. Hey, you still have time to run down to the bookstore and speed-read it before the 1st. 😀
This post on Query Tracker’s blog has more links.
And, as if trying to write 50,000 words in a month isn’t urgent enough (that’s over 1600 words a day!), you can create urgency by employing these simple and um… unconventional tactics. I would personally never use any of these, but hey, they’re good for a chuckle.
Can you come up with other ways to build urgency? I find a microwave timer beeping the end of the kids’ Quiet Times does wonders for me some days. 😀
