Write in the Same Place: NaNoWriMo Tip #11

When working on your National Novel Writing Month manuscript, try to always write in the same place to keep your mind focused.

Over at Endpaper Notes, you can read daily NaNoWriMo advice from different authors. Novelist Sarah Pekkanen shared this particular piece of advice.

Here’s more from the post: “If you have a good writing stretch, try to replicate the exact environment the next time you sit down to write. Stephen King recommends this as a way to ‘trick’ your brain into writing and avoid procrastinating, and it really works! I wandered into a coffee shop one morning while my son was in preschool and got a chunk of writing done. Now I hit that same coffee shop three mornings a week – I even go in through the same door and try to sit in the same table.”

This is our eleventh 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. Click here for weekly free eBooks from eBookNewser.
