Reblogged from Interesting Literature

Which classic novels were all written within a month? And which writer would take all his clothes off as a way of coping with writer’s block? We’re here to inspire you in your writing quest whether you’re taking part in NaNoWriMo or merely trying to complete (nay, perhaps start) a writing project.

This month, many people are taking part in NaNoWriMo, or ‘National Novel Writing Month’, which takes place every November. The idea is to write a novel – to start one if not to complete it – by writing 50,000 words across the month of November. Here at Interesting Literature we thought we’d offer some support for those undertaking NaNoWriMo by showing how even famous and established novelists have had to cope with writer’s block, deadlines, and writing quickly.

I’ve fallen by the wayside when it comes to this year’s #NaNoWriMo because of personal circumstances, but if you’re hitting a low as  the finishing line looms over the horizon, you will either be encouraged by Interesting Literature‘s post and believe that even if you have fallen behind in your word count, it is just possible you might be able to reach 50k words by the end of the month, or you will feel small, insignificant and hopeless!  It’s the way yer look at it!

Personally, the post gives me hope that even if my three and a half-days’ worth amounts to very little, I will be able to harness the energy and focus to make up for it and it doesn’t matter whether it’s December or January or some other point in the future; after all, the whole idea is to complete a novel (ok, mine’s a memoir but you get my drift). Good night and good luck!

Because it’s NaNoWRiMo season, I thought that it would be cool to write a few posts about the writing process. Today… outlining.

A lot of writers choose to plan and outline their novels before they even start writing the first chapter. Some might draw maps, cover an entire wall with sticky notes, while others might even draw scenes and characters.

Since my continuing to write for #NaNoWriMo has been halted by life events, as I predicted, I thought you would appreciate some tips from experienced blogger and writer Cristian Mihai.

This is what I hope to be doing in November, in other words getting back to my writing. Do you write? Do you want to write? Join #NaNoWriMo and go with the flow!

Take care and keep laughing!

Have you always wanted to write a novel?

We know some of you have been waiting all year for this month! For those of you who are new to this project, here’s the gist:
