NaNoWriMo – Get on Board and Write That Novel in 30 Days!

NaNoWriMo - Get on Board and Write That Novel in 30 Days!

Have you ever wished you could write that novel you’ve had rattling around in your brain for ages? Now is your chance – National Novel Writing Month started yesterday, and they have a great website with loads of resources to help you get started.

Better still, there are plenty of tools to help you get started, loads of special deals (including on the awesome Scrivener Mac/PC app), help from other writers and so on.

I have joined up (today) and just got started – and plan to do it all on the iPad. I am using iThoughts HD to outline and develop characters and interactions; then have started in both Nebulous and Evernote to put things in place – I have a terrible fixation on getting a great opening paragraph, so having that separate from the rest is important … otherwise December 1st will roll around and I’ll still be working on the opening!

What about you? Are you going to try? If so, add me as a writing buddy and we can help each other along! Good luck!

Head to the National Novel Writing Month website and get started!

Michael Anderson
I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
