Write It, Work It, Publish It™

I’m reminded of the purpose behind NaNoWriMo as I continued to write about the procrastination issues the main protagonist in “Untitled” is experiencing.

Remember I told you that the purpose is to write by ‘the seat-of-your-pants’ to produce 50,000 words (approx.175 double spaced pages). I remembered when NaNoWriMo first came about in 1999. Many people thought it would be a waste of time.

Approximately thirteen years later, it has many hybrids, but the most essential thing in my opinion is that it gets one started. Irrespective whether they reach or bypass the word count, the important thing is getting started and testing your resolve throughout the 30-days. With constant writing, it’s a surety that you will hone your writing skills.

This leads me to a blog post I randomly found by copy blogger, Brian Clark: 10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer

I may well have to forward it to Lavina with a slight change: Stop procrastinating and follow these 10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer:)

Here are the10 Steps:

  1. Write.
  2. Write more.
  3. Write even more.
  4. Write even more than that.
  5. Write when you don’t want to.
  6. Write when you do.
  7. Write when you have something to say.
  8. Write when you don’t.
  9. Write every day.
  10. Keep writing.
