NaNoWriMo Tip #1

When you are furiously writing during NaNoWriMo (or any time, really), keep a notebook nearby in which you can jot down little tid-bits that occur to you as you type. It may be a bit of backstory, something about a character, a revelation about some layer of plot, or a sudden image of a place in your story yet to be visited--anything! It is also handy when you need to make notes of things that you may need to research further. You'll be glad to have your notes to refer back to when you're ready to revise.


  1. Good idea, Becky.

  2. I use 4x6 note cards and keep them together on a large ring. I tend to write ideas as scenes, so as I figure out my story, I can change the order of my scenes on the ring :)


I would love to hear from you!
