The Daily Post

At the stroke of midnight tonight, aspiring writers everywhere will take a deep breath. One second later, their blank screens won’t be blank any longer — for quite a while.

November 1st marks the start of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The annual fiction extravaganza will bring together more than 200,000 writers this year, first-timers and pros alike, each committed to hammer out 50,000 words of sparkling fiction over the course of the month.

Have you signed up but feeling queasy about taking the plunge? Are you still not sure if making the commitment is right for you? Here to give you expert advice are five veteran NaNo authors: they each leveraged their NaNoWriMo project into a published novel (some more than once!), and they all also happen to be active bloggers. You’re in good hands.

      1. I outline very loosely now. I usually lose steam when I outline too much. I’m more of a pantser than a plotter – until I get to the middle of the story, when everything is set up, then I plot and outline, but loosely still.

        I’ve killed many a novel by outlining too much in the past and that’s how I think I killed my last one from July.

I'd love to hear what you think!
