Valuing quantity, risk taking, and perseverance over quality, NaNoWriMo dares you to hunker down and write that book you always dreamed of. picked by heymrp 5 months ago

Fiction authors' rules for writing fiction (and writing in general)
Do not place a photograph of your ­favourite author on your desk, especially if the author is one of the famous ones who committed suicide.

Do give the work a name as quickly as possible. Own it, and see it. Dickens knew Bleak House was going to be called Bleak House before he started writing it. The rest must have been easy. picked by cecilberman 1 year ago
