If you are an aspiring fiction writer, it might be tempting to think that, unlike nonfiction writers, that fiction writers don't put much forethought into what and how they write novels. However, when I take a closer look at novels that sell, I notice the opposite: fiction writers who write novels that sell DO put forethought and planning into their novels before, during, and after the drafting process.
So, if you are doing NaNoWriMo, writers, I suggest that you get strategic before November 1st. There's not much time, I know. But even reading one of these great fiction guides is going to make a huge difference in the quality of that draft you work on every day in November.
Have fun. Be strategic. Get busy reading!
Any/all of these guides in the right-hand column of this blog will show you how to make the most of National Novel Writing Month.
