NaNoWriMo Day 3

Total for today: approx. 5-8K

If you're a little behind just chill out. You don't need to worry. Here are some of my own tips to try and reach that word goal (I'm not a professional so they may not be any good).
  • Are you comfrotable with your writing? If you're really not feeling the writing then why did you start it in the first place? Writing something that you're comforable with and you're sure you like is a big step in the writing process. That means that you're going to have a lot to write about, talk about. It will make it easier to rack up those words.
  • Think about what you're going to write. Think of that scene and maybe two or three other scenes after that. When you know what exactly you want start writing. This will help you try to get to that next scene by making somethin happen that you may actually like and keep in the end.
  • Time. This is probably about the hardest things to accomplish during NaNoWriMo; having enough time to actually write. So, here's a suggestion. What I do is I take a clipboard with paper and copy the last sentence in my whole WIP. I take the clipboard and when something comes to me I start writing and writing. By the time you get home you may have four or five pages ready to type up and during that time you can edit and add even more words to it.
  • Music or silence. Either will probably make you concentrate better. I choose music. I just put on Pandora Radio and listen to a whole bunch of different songs. Silence can work to. All you need to do is just put on your Thinking Cap and just listen to your fingers hittting those keys. If you have people walking in and interrupting it just won't work (trust my experience).
There are some tips. You can follow them or if you have others; comment!

Have a nice 3rd day of NaNo!
