How to Get Started

Posted by: Chris Angotti on 10/30/2012

NaNoWriMo officially begins on November 1 at 12:00 AM in your time zone. Have you done everything you need to do to be ready?

"Ready" means the following things in NaNoLand. (Please shout "Check!" after each one. Unless you're in a library, in which case you should just whisper it.)

If all these things are in line, you're good to go! Use the momentum of Day 1 (whether you start at midnight or 4:00 in the afternoon) to rack up some brilliant plot points.

And of course, update your word count at the end of your writing day. Click on "My NaNoWriMo""Edit Novel Info" (Or, enter it in the box next to the YWP logo in the masthead.)

Remember: November 1 is the day to start—no matter what species of Wrimo you are.
