    CooperDear fellow NaNo-ists,

    It’s Week Three, and some of you are probably giving up hope that you’ll ever reach your word-count goal in time. You’re wondering why you signed up for this. Writing a novel in a month? How did you get talked into this?!

    Tamora PierceOkay. You’re at the point that marathon runners call “the wall.” It’s the one where you’ve run smack out of inspiration and your start-up excitement. It’s quit or finish and you’d really rather quit, but you have all these words, and friends, family, and those nasty people at school or the office are waiting to see if you’ll finish.

    The second week of NaNo is here and right now, as you read this, Writer’s Block, Procrastination, and Poor Time Management are gathering in some dark, stereotypical villain hangout, plotting how to end your novel.

    Veronica RothMy Dear NaNo-ers,

    I don’t particularly like comparing novel writing to climbing a mountain, because it’s been done, but let’s face it: it works. Look at this fairly standard map of plot structure...

262,641,707
