Every October, hundreds of bloggers gather at The Nesting Place to write for 31 days straight on a variety of different topics, teaching and encouraging and offering tips and tricks to make life easier.
This month, I’ll be helping you plan your novel – starting from that sort-of-an-idea you’ve had floating around in the ether, and ending with an outline, ready to write.
(NaNoWriMo starts November 1st, so what a great opportunity to keep going once we’re done here!)
Every day you’ll get a tip and an ‘assignment’ that should take around 30 minutes to complete. The first two weeks will be spent on brainstorming and free-writing, getting into the world of your story and fleshing out characters, situations and settings, then we’ll spend a few days on developing a story arc before we start writing our outlines in the last week.
For me, this 31 Days Challenge is a bit more than just blogging for 31 days. It’s the launch series for this blog – if you’ve gone back trying to see what else I’ve written, you’ve noticed that this is the very first post in this space – so welcome! I’m happy to meet you, and I hope I’ll see more of you around here!
Let’s get started!
