Link for NaNoWriMo Help

NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow!

If you’d like to do some thinking about your plot, I found these videos very helpful.  Keep your notebook nearby and jot down ideas while you listen!

I’ve made a goal of writing 200 words on my brand new project each day for the month along with my other writing goals.  I’ll be keeping track here.

What’s your goal for November?


NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

 November is National Novel Writing Month.  For years many people have signed up on the NaNoWriMo website ( and pledged to write a certain number of words in a month.  The Young Writers section of the website is filled with ideas for developing your story and completing the words.  It also has a tracker to graph your progress.

Imagine making a commitment to writing every day.  By the end of thirty days, you’d have a lot of work done!

What kind of goal would you make?  A journal entry every day?  A page of your story?  A poem?  A certain number of words?

I’d love to set up a class on the NaNoWriMo site.  Students from my former school and writing camp, let me know if you want to join!

Think about your own commitment to writing for the next month.  What will it be?
