Attempting to write 1667 words a day for 30 days during the month of November – also known as NaNoWriMo – is the perfect way to add a dose of discipline to your writing schedule.
Many writing experts and published writers agree that successful writing is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration. NaNoWriMo, if nothing else, adds a healthy splash of sweat to your writing schedule.
However, anyone who has attempted NaNoWriMo will have faced a number of obstacles on their journey to the end of the month. Fortunately, Stop Procrastinating, the productivity website, has surveyed 2 000 NaNoWriMo writers ahead of this year’s November writing challenge to find out what kept them going until the very end.
The findings are powerful and actionable. From undertaking a little planning to learning how to write just about anywhere, the strategies are sure to help many undertaking the challenge this year.
