no plot no problem

I have had this book for a very long time but it looks like I had to wait to read it until I signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) which is this year! NaNoWriMo is a great opportunity to practice writing in public to a certain degree and finish your shitty first draft.

Chris Baty is the founder of NaNoWriMo. He’s been there, done it, got the badge. In this book, he shows you how to survive 30 day of novel writing during November, what to eat, where to write, how to socialise, what to expect from each week and eventually write 50.000 words. Previous NaNoWriMo winners share their experiences and give you many tips. As you can imagine, they’ve been there, done it, got the badge, too.

I took many notes from No Plot? No Problem and put them all together to go through the important parts as part of my preparations. I particularly liked the section about coffee 🙂
