An extra post to get us in the mood for Halloween and NaNoWriMo…enjoy.

Jennifer Weiner, Author


Since the eve of NaNoWriMo starts in just over 4 hours here on the east coast of the USA, I thought some quick tips on writing would be good for all of us. I also want to share a collection of documents I’ve gathered while preparing (or pretending to prepare) for this adventure that November promises.  You can take a look at all the documents here, and download (if I understand correctly).  Documents for writers assembled by me.

Stephen King On Short Stories and More

Just because you can’t do anything about writing fiction and not talk about the horror master!

Tips on Writing A Book on A Dead Line

It even mentions NaNoWriMo towards the end! Some pretty basic tips, but the day before the day before we start this craziness!

Top Ten Writing Rules From Famous Writers

Some pretty well-known “rules”, but a great refresher for me…

  1. Hi, Mandy.
    Thanks for the re-blog. Hope you’re having a scary Halloween.. 7 hours 20 minutes and counting here…ahhhh LOL


    • My pleasure – it was a cool post!
      Yep counting down the hours here too…NaNo here we come – words flowing.


      • Thanks 🙂 I am so freaking nervous about this whole NaNo thing…first timer here LOL oh, and I entered a writing contest on Watt Pad…how smart am I? But it’s all will be a way to prime the old story telling engine (I hope!)


      • Don’t beat yourself up about NaNo I had written really short pieces before my first one! You get done, what you get done. It’s an achievement no matter what your word count.


      • I’m trying not too..I’m a VERY competitive person by nature though, so winning tends to be my focus on things that have some sort of WIN attached to them LOL I am sure I will enjoy the process, and getting in to the habit of writing everyday will help me in other areas as well 🙂
