NANOWALFAS 2015 PARTICIPANTS
I got a lot of news, so hear me out, aighty?
A lot of us are losing momentum in the final days of NaNoWriMo, like we just decided to stop writing altogether. Here's the thing: those who give up are those who don't have novels, so never, never, never give up.
If you are having trouble, I will teach you my awesome technique, which I really should have taught earlier. I haven't thought of a cool name for it, but it requires a good-length writing session, say, two hours. It's simple really; it goes like this:
30 minutes of writing. No checking word count. No going to the bathroom. No getting a drink or some food. Fox only. Final Destination.
15 minute break. Check your word count and do what you need here.
30 minutes of power writing like above.
15 minute break
Keep looping these two steps.
Even if you write at a piddly 20 words per minute, you will still muster 600 words per burst of writing. If you wanna know how much writing you'll get done for the day look at how much time you'll devote to writing with this handy list:
2 hours (I got free time!)
Low estimate yield: 1800 words
5 hours (I got a while!)
Low estimate yield: 4200 words
8 hours (Working a shift)
Low estimate yield: 6600 words
11 hours (I got all day!)
Low estimate yield: 9000 words
14 hours (I'm the Juggernaut!)
Low estimate yield: 11,400 words
You can take advantage of the free time you'll have this long weekend and write the hell out of your novel. It ain't over until December. Don't give up!
But as for those who have already ascended into being above 50k, you should get your novel verified as soon as possible, so you can have that fancy purple bar and printable certificate
The last two years, we hosted a NaNoWriMo Finish Line party, and I wanna do it again this year, but I don't know if I can make it, so hopefully it will happen without me coming in until I can. It should go throughout November 30 in the NaNoWriMo text and voice chats on Discord, until 2 a.m. of December 1, Central Time.Please let me know what you think.
