@colinwalker If you can organize some time everyday it’s real fun! You don’t even have to have a real idea if you should not find anything. Just write, the rest follows 😊 Go for it!

@colinwalker last year I really wanted to take part in NaNoWriMo, I was in a flow. I had an idea in mind. I had started prep, with some stories with the characters and the setting. Just couldn’t close it. I am planning to attempt again this year.

@amit @hutaffe I think I’ve got an idea, it’s non-fiction but don’t want to say too much at the moment. I’ll mull it over for a while and see where I can take it. And if I don’t finish it in a month so what.

@colinwalker It’s a fun thing to do! The key is making sure you have a specific daily time set aside to write. Everyone I know that does that generally finishes. My challenge is always a lack of discipline. Either way, finish or not, you always walk away with a huge chunk of your book finished and are able to continue! 🙂

@EddieHinkle I work shifts so it will have to be a set “relative” time, probably during my commute.

@amit helping writers build stories is my thing. I wrote a series of articles about Building Your Novel for NaNoWriMo on my site. Hope it helps inspire you & others 😁
