Life After NaNo: Making New Goals

My blog post regarding NaNo ending and making new goals is on the #amwriting site today. It’s useful whether or not you did NaNo. Goals should be reviewed as we evolve and learn more about our needs. There are five goals to kickstart the process detailed in the post.

Tips for Wrimos:

  1. Write more than 50k before you verify your word count. Many people, including our heroine, are surprised by a lower count than expected.
  2. VERIFY ASAP. Don’t wait until the last moment so you can verify with a higher count. Get your work verified early to avoid possible server lag when everyone around the world is trying to get verified, too. I’ve seen people “lose” NaNo due to server lag near midnight.

Take care,

    Got it! Thanks for doing the “Quit Hedging and Just Do It” post last fall – what finally pushed me over the edge into NaNo. ‘-)
