NaNoWriMo Tip #19: Power Write Through The Holiday Weekend

nanowrimoNational Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is slowly coming to an end, as writers around the globe try to finish a 50,000-word novel draft in a single month.

To help the GalleyCat readers taking this challenge, we will be offering NaNoWriMo advice throughout the month. Last year, 341,375 participants wrote a novel in 30 days through the NaNoWriMo program. The writing marathon has generated more than 250 traditionally published novels, according to the organizers.

Our nineteenth tip is: Power Write Through The Holiday Weekend. The final days of the month are closing in, but lucky for many there is a long four-day holiday weekend upon us. If you have a day job, chances are that this weekend you’ll have a nice long break from it, a great excuse to finish your novel. That’s 96 hours to get your book done. Take full advantage of this situation and get writing.
