Here I go again–REBLOGGING a post. (Mine) This might be beneficial to those doing NaNoWriMo this year. As I read through this, I realized I’ve always been working on two books during NaNoWriMo. So, why should this year be any different? Yes, this means I’ve decided to participate in #NaNoWriMo2014. Onward… Have fun and enjoy the rest of October. If you’re participating, I’m sure you are plotting and planning. November 1st will be here soon. Remember, this post was written last year.
Ugh, November. I’m not looking forward to another winter in Michigan, but it’s better than the alternative of not being around to experience it. 🙂

Whew, I’ve been so busy. I won’t talk about what NaNoWriMo is because by now, if you’re interested, you already know.

Maybe you can learn some things from my NaNo Experience.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not an expert in this. My three years and two days is a drop in the bucket compared to some. This is about how my NaNoWriMo experience has evolved in almost four years. I follow the rules (most) and I’ve learned a lot. But…my biggest rule breaker might be the one where I allow my inner-editor to sit on my shoulder. Heck, she can sit on my lap if she wants. I’ll share my M&M’s with her. After all, I’m used to sharing my chocolate with my stubborn little muse.

  • Don’t Do not use contractions
  • Use plenty—I repeat, plenty…
