It's the time of year when writers all over begin preparing for the mammoth achievement of writing a novel in a month. While it is definitely attainable, it is definitely a moment where one has to truly rise to the task. If you've done this before, you probably know what I'm talking about, but if you haven't let's jump into why people even want to do something like this in the first place.
SO, WHY SHOULD I WRITE A NOVEL IN A MONTH?
There are plenty more reasons, which we've covered in the past. We have a previous post about why you might want to participate in National Novel Writing Month and more on what that is, but the truth is that even if you don't want to join an actual organization the points in that post about WHY you should try writing a novel in a month are still super valid. So if this is a new concept to you, definitely go check out all our reasons on why writing a novel in such a short amount of time is a great idea.
Now that you've decided to take up the challenge, it's important to prepare properly for the month to come. October is commonly referred to as Preptober in the writing community, so we're here with the entire master list on how to prep effectively.
HOW TO PREP:
So there you have it! Before this post ends, we wanted to share one more resource called Plot Factory that can totally explode your novel planning and help you stay organized. There are several levels of subscription options, but also a free version. Here you can create and store information on your world, characters, plot, scenes and more! It's especially useful if you're planning an epic series, world-hopping projects or even novels that tie into other books.
