Writing Tips (woopwoopNaNoWriMo)

Posted on


Typically I am a “panster”, writing and creating whenever I feel like it, not really planning much, but, now that I am doing NaNoWriMo I have gone into a planning frenzy.  So, I want to share some of the things I have found for all my fellow newbie comrades.

First of all, I love the idea of asking your characters questions, see who they are, what their motivators are. So here is a short list I made, feel free to download! (my books are typically fantasy, or have supernatural twists so questions MAY lean towards those genres). I got most of these ideas from Chuck Wendig, whose blog is amazing (humorous, swift kick in the ass advice), but googling character questions brings up a plethora of information.


Next will be use of magic.  Man, this list really made me go, ‘oh, shit, I never thought of that’.  I think knowing a lot of these will make my writing better, and help build a more solid story.

Lastly, general advice. These are my favorites that I have collected, and if you like them, you can follow my Writing Tips board over on Pinterest as I usually try to post them all there:

Susan Dennard: I Love getting her email, because her advice and honesty about her writing process is fantastic.

Wil Wheaton: He posts a lot of his writing on his blog, but I Love his honesty about depression and uncertainty/fear about the creating process. It’s just so relatable and sincere.  I just love the guy.

Patricia C Wrede:  Oh man is her blog ever full of advice. She’s also the one who wrote the above Magic Rules post.  Dive in there and start learning!

 Chuck Wendig: LOL, I just love this guy. His posts are funny and he never takes anything to seriously.

She’s Novel:  Sign up to get free stuff/newsletter and utilize all her resources.  Lots of PDF guides (character questions, novel planning, setting guides, etc) that you can pick and choose what works for you.

I hope you enjoy! If you have some great resources/blogs/books let me know in the comments or email me!
