NaNoWriMo Day 1 – How to Keep Calm & Write On for the Next 30 Days

It’s officially Day 1 of National Novel Writing Month! How’s everybody doing? Have you started writing yet today?

Writing under pressure is never easy but our friend Ali Luke wrote a great piece for Copyblogger that might help keep you focused for the next 30 days. We’ve written a super brief summary below but you can find the article in its detailed entirety here.

1. Pick your topic (day 1-2)

2. Create an outline (day 3-4)

3. Start writing (day 5-25)

4. Redraft your book (day 26-28)

5. Make final changes (day 29-30)

What tips and tricks do you have for staying motivated for NaNoWriMo this month? Please let us know in the comments below.

When you’ve finished your book at the end of November, sell it on for Kindle, iPad, Nook, Kobo, and more!
