A six-stage plan for writing your Nano novel in 30 days

Just in time for the NaNoWriMo kickoff Nov. 1, I found a series of articles on The Guardian online outlining a six-stage plan for writing a book in 30 days. The series is part of a 32-page supplement delivered free to Guardian readers in its Oct. 20 edition.

The 30-day plan includes handy worksheets and details about:

  • Creating setting, plot, outline, and preliminary characters
  • Researching your idea
  • The evolution of your story
  • Introducing the formatted outline
  • Evaluating the strength of your formatted outline
  • Revising your first draft

While every writer has his or her own style, you just may find tips here to speed your progress.

Good luck in your Nano mission.
