I, once again and undertaking the task of NaNoWriMo next month. Last year, I attempted Nano but sadly, I did not win. I put No Plot? No Problem! onto my wishlist last year before Nano thinking that it may or may not be helpful in my novel writing process.

I managed to get through about two weeks of my novel before I ended up giving up. Yes, two weeks. I feel into the trap that so many others fall into. I let my inner editor run around and critique everything that I wrote.

When I read No Plot? No Problem! I realized, even though I knew it all along, to be successful, I need to let that go. I will never get a novel written if I continue to backspace and delete everything that I type. It makes me so frustrated that I eventually just give up entirely.

Full of practical advice on novel writing and making it to your 50,000 word count, No Plot? No Problem is a must read for anyone considering the crazy, wild idea of writing a novel in 30 days. There is a nice little section full of advice by each week of Nano which can be a great help and motivator particularly if you're very, very behind on word counts!
