How Ally Rose Won NaNoWriMo

The days of me writing by the seat of my pants (or as the literary folks refer to it,  “pantsing”) are long gone. I just don’t have the time or discipline to sit in front of a keyboard and will awesomeness into existence. I have to plan my ass off just so I’m not wasting valuable time when I’m sitting at the keyboard.

Planning. Research. Standing on the shoulders of giants to get myself ready for the Big Push. (Note – the Big Push I’m referring to is NaNoWriMo, not anything bathroom related. Just thought I’d clarify that.)

Naturally, my research took me to Youtube, which took me deep down the rabbit hole. That’s where I found Ally Rose, who not only participated in NaNoWriMo last year but managed to reach the 50,000-word goal in THIRTEEN DAYS WHAT!

This may be someone who might have a tip or two that I could use.  Just a hunch.


Tip – I have used Write or Die in the past, and I fully plan on doing it again when I write from home. Word sprints, especially ones with rewards (or consequences… muahaha) are a great way to keep myself on task.
