I would say check out the Popsugar challenge thread, or shelves/personal challenge threads of anyone participating. Mine only has a few entries right now, but feel free to look. The GR Popsugar group is also a good place to browse for ideas.

Willow Croft (willowcroft) | 2 comments For National Novel Writing Month, on that day, I was either reading Sandra Scofield's The Scene Book: A Primer for the Fiction Writer or her The Last Draft: A Novelist's Guide to Revision. One of those. I'm just about done with The Last Draft, so it was probably that one.
