Episode 36: How to break the rules and have a joyful (and productive) NaNoWriMo

Listen now!

Who’s doing NaNoWriMo?

This week, I’m talking about National Novel Writing Month—what it is, how to get ready for it, and how to crush it while keeping your sanity.

National Novel Writing Month is a challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days during the month of November. And while it sounds pretty daunting if you’ve never tried it, there are ways to get through it without your stress levels hitting the roof.

I’m giving you those tips today. I’m talking about:

• The three keys to a successful NaNo

• How to set the goal that’s right for you

• Mindset tips to keep you going strong even when it gets tough

• Practical prep tools so you can hit the ground running next week

If you’ve been thinking about NaNo this year for the first time, or you’re an OG NaNoer and want to approach it differently, this episode is for you.
