What better way to celebrate the weekend than with some writing/creative inspiration from the great Ernest Hemingway? Since it’s Saturday, at least you NaNoWriMo-ers can write in your pajamas all day. Well, unless you’re hitting up Starbucks like a proper hipster…no, actually, you’ve survived the first week of NaNoWriMo, so you wear those pajamas; you’ve earned it! Alright, that’s enough boasting about your success to all of us who haven’t met our word counts, so let’s get to the links.
The Links You Need in Your Life
NaNoWriMo participant? If you’re finishing up your first week in your quest to complete the first draft of a novel in a month, then you’re probably starting to feel your excitement fade a little bit. Don’t worry, Bustle’s Melissa Ragsdale (no relation) has got some more tips to help you through the approaching dark days: “6 Tips Every Writer Trying To Win NaNoWriMo Needs to Hear.”
Not a NaNoWriMo-er? Not taking part in the challenge doesn’t mean that you can’t take away some of the creative energy from it. Flavorwire’s Sarah Seltzer has some ideas on how to benefit from NaNoWriMo as an outsider: “NaNoWriMo Is Upon Us: How to Get Inspired Even If You’re Not Participating.”
Don’t Forget! There are two virtual write-ins hosted by NaNoWriMo Official today: “NaNoWriMo Virtual Write-In: 11/07/15 (12 p.m. EST/9 a.m. PST)” & “NaNoWriMo Virtual Write-In: 11/07/15 (6 p.m. EST/3 p.m. PST).” If you can’t make the live version, you can replay the session after it’s uploaded post live-viewing.
