Join Me for NaNoWriMo Prep

Back by popular demand, for the next 31 days, I’m going to share my tips for having an awesome National Novel Writing Month.

But first, a brief Q&A:

What is National Novel Writing Month?

Affectionately known as NaNoWriMo, it’s a 30-day writing challenge in which writers around the world set out to write 50,000 words during the month of November. Visit for more information and to sign-up.

Why should we listen to you?

Great question and I like your sass. In short: I have participated and successfully completed NaNoWriMo every year from 2010-2019. That’s ten years of writing more than 50,000 words in November. I have it down. This year I have applied my NaNoWriMo best practices to my regular writing routine. As a result, I’ve written an average of 55,000 words every month. My lowest word count month was 37,000 words. My highest word count month was 100,000 words. This is what I do. 🙂 I balance my writing with a full-time day job so I’m all about the work smarter not harder life. That said, you should take all writing advice with a grain of salt. These are tips that work for me. Please borrow and modify them as you like.

Didn’t you do this last year?

You bet your sweet buns I did. I figure it’s always good for a refresher and reminder. Plus, I’ve learned a lot in the past year. I’ve added updates and bonus information, some of it tailored for this season of our lives.

How do we view this glorious information?

I’ll have daily updates on Facebook and Instagram. But I’ll publish a couple of posts every week here on my website with the tips organized by subject. I may experiment with adding a couple of videos, so stay tuned for that.

Are you ready to do this? Let’s go! Join me throughout this month as we prepare to conquer November.
