National Novel Writing Month – Now that You’ve Begun, How Do You Keep Going?
Congratulations! You’ve taken the huge step of signing up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and you’re in the throes of writing your novel.
But what happens if (when?) the exuberant exhilaration wears off? How do you keep going?
Don’t panic! Whether it’s your first Nano or your fifteenth, time-tested methods will help you keep going once that initial excitement wanes.
Join award-winning author, writing and meditation coach, and fourteen-time NaNoWriMo winner Nita Sweeney for a lunch n’ learn full of tips to carry you through November and across the NaNoWriMo finish line. Nita’s first book, the running and mental health memoir, Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running with My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink was a multi-year NaNoWriMo project. Her second book, You Should Be Writing: A Journal of Inspiration & Instruction to Keep Your Pen Moving, coauthored with Brenda Knight, offers author wisdom to help you on your NaNoWriMo journey.
In this workshop Nita will discuss:
- Using candy-bar scenes to stay motivated
- How community can help (or hinder) your progress
- The role of writing “fuel”
- The importance of maintaining your writing “machine”
- Structures to manage time and emotion
- And much more!
