This year I plan to use two main tools in my NaNoWriMo efforts.
Scrivener: The hands down best piece of software for a novel writer ever created. They don’t even pay me to say that, I just love the product that much. I love them so much I actually pay for their software, even though I’m a big fan of the free. Says something. Once you see the power of story bible, novel, character dossiers, and summary index cards all in one place you will simply never go back to a simple word processor again.
Yarny, a cloud based product much like Scrivener, popped up last year and I found it invaluable for when I didn’t want to lug my laptop around. It has many of the features I find vital to my novel-writing and yet it’s cloud based so I can have it on any device anywhere with internet access. Sweet!
NaNoWriMo is never the same without our good friend, Dr Wicked:
Write. Or. Die. I can hear “Banana Phone” already. Someone pray for me.
What can you do to help? Chicken nuggets and gourmet hot chocolate, thanks!
And, a word to the wise since this seems to be the year of “Let’s Annoy Ozma”. I’m a writer. I’m creative. You seriously don’t want to mess with me.
You. Will. Die.
