That New Novel Smell

It’s NaNoWriMo again. Man that came up fast, didn’t we just do this last year? Actually I have never done a NaNoWriMo challenge. I guess I am this month. I had a unique idea come to me in my sleep and figured I’d give a crack at getting it all down.

Along with that, I came across this great post from Anne R. Allen’s awesome blog. Writing that First Chapter: 10 Do’s and Don’ts for Starting Your Novel. I can say I’m guilty of violating some of them. The most important do is to write your first chapter last. I live by that advice. I start somewhere just to get things going but in my heart I know I’ll probably be replacing it in the rewrite. So good writing to all the NaNoWriMos out there, stay sane and productive.
