Getting ready for Nanowrimo this year? I have a tip for you:
To keep track of your daily word count, when you get back to writing, day-to-day, change your font color from black to some other color. 🙂 That way, if you jump around in your scenes (the way I sometimes do) you can easily find your day’s text to add it to your count. Each morning, after you’ve added that count, go and change all text back to black and start again.
If you’d like a checklist of things to do to “prep” your story for the madness that is National Novel Writing Month, I have a free download of the entire “guide”. If you’d like it, click here.
