No plotYes that is a problem Free flow writing is like having the shits You feel tremendous relief but it really stinks In essence what you get if you follow Baty s program and do the Nanowrimo challenge is a microcosm or truncation of the usual novel first draft a laying down of the bare bones of your intended book as fast as you possibly can regardless of how embarrassingly awful the outcome Chances are you ll be left with a lot of words on the page and very little structure an amoeba novel if you willDon t get me wrong it s not a bad concept forcing yourself to write a rough draft within 30 days It might be useful for new writers who are sometimes afraid of or anxious to place word to paper Having the impetus or extraneous force of a schedule and a community of likemindeds compelling one to just bloody write is not a bad thing However a mess of a rough draft is often what you get if you start a novel at your own pace anyhow The aforementioned impetus should be coming from your natural desire to write Every day of the damn year you should be waking up each morning yearning to get to work on that book of yours You should be grinding your teeth at having to go to your 9 to 5 job and counting off the minutes until you re able to leave that job and return to the work you love If that kind of impetus isn t within you already this may not be the profession for youAnd if you don t want to make writing a profession there is even less reason to do Nanowrimo If you just want to get that one book within you out why rush it Why vomit words on pages that you ll only have to go back and clean all up later anyhow Pick a good uiet time during the day to write pick a reasonable goal number of words to reach per day and simply make it a habit to do this each and every day You ll get that book finished soon enough and it won t be a tragic mess No Plot is not the best book for the new writer It is however the best book for a writer looking to play the finish a novel in 30 days game that Baty originated But honestly that s about it I d suggest looking elsewhere for proper writing advice Below are links to how to books I ve enjoyed Plot Structure Techniues and Exercises for Crafting a Plot That Grips Readers from Start to Finish by James Scott Bell is great for genre writers and those who feel their writing needs to get to the pointhttpswwwgoodreadscombookshow2Stephen King s On Writing was surprisingly informative Especially good for King fans looking for a little autobiography Lamott s Bird by Bird is an almost spiritual approach to writing Almosthttpswwwgoodreadscombookshow1Strunk and White s slim The Elements of Style is great if you re like me and suck at grammar

No Plot? No Problem A Low Stress High Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days

And essential survival strategies cover the initial momentum and energy of Week One the critical plot flashes of Week Two the Can I uit now impulses of Week Three and the champagne and roar of the crowd during Week Four Whether you're a first time novelist who just can't seem to get pen to paper or a result. This book is a nice pep talk for nanowrimo It s not a guide for writing as such And that s fine because nanowrimo national novel writing month isn t like normal writing It s the insane thing where you write 50000 words in a month and then either look at the draft and think what the hell this is soooo bad or you spend a whole year re writing the thing So why do I do it Why will I try it again this year after having won the last two years Last november I wrote a novel so dumb no one but me has read it I m not sure if it s irredeemable but I doubt I ll ever edit it to make it worth anyone s time I also realized I m not good with political themes and that s a valuable lesson don t shoehorn antifascist sentiments when what you re good at is interpersonal problems So yes nanowrimo helps me get to know myself as a writer better But the main thing for me is it s fun It s crazy fun To be able to write so much while my inner critic can t stop me is a joy I don t get out of normal writing at all It s like being a child again and just making it up as you go Of course I hope what I ll write this year will be good enough so I ll actually want to edit it But if not if it s going to be nano novel 3 that never sees the light of day that will be fine too

    The biggest thing separating people from their artistic ambitions is not a lack of talent It's the lack of a deadline Chris Baty No Plot?

    How to write a novel in 30 days Poorly Not terribly impressed with the author's writing style or ideas Too bad I got distracted about 10000 words into my horrendous novel The problem with the book is that it is all peptalk and no substance Blech

    Rating 5 of fiveThis techniue broke my years long writer's block It was a huge gift to me to make this discovery I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone looking for a sledgehammer to crack the icy seas inside

    I am reluctant to give this a star rating This approach definitely wouldn’t work for me but it could have value to someone else The problem I have with it is two fold The project’s goal is to just get 50000 words –any words onto paper within a month and that will supposedly create a basis for a novel and uality doesn’t matter at all
