Thinking out loud about National Novel Writing Month. This podcast covers the event where writers try to complete 50,000 words in 30 days.
Episode 2: NaNoWriRules and Plot
From the National Novel Writing Month forums: “NaNoWriMo defines a novel as a 'lengthy work of fiction.' The short answer to your question is, if you think you're writing a novel, then so do we.”
Question for listeners: How much do you outline before the month starts? Have you started outlining already? If you do prep work, does that help with the overall success?
