Seek Figment Support: NaNoWriMo Tip #6

Need some support for your National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) work? The community writing site Figment has created a private NaNoWriMo group to support aspiring novelists. The site will also feature stories, tips and interviews with young writers taking the NaNoWriMo challenge.

Here’s more about the group: “One of the best parts of NaNo is the community of people all dragging their ton-heavy writer’s blocks toward a finish line. So make friends! Head to the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program and commiserate. If you want to rant, rant! The Figment group will support you. Over 200,000 writers participated in NaNoWriMo last year, so you are in large and talented company.”

This is our sixth NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
