How to do NaNoWriMo
How I did it: This was my first NaNoWriMo and it was great when I realized that 1667 words per day isn't really that much. Actually, it can be written within an hour if you want to. The problem that I was facing from time to time was lack of inspiration. It was really hard for me to go into that world that I created at some moments. And I found two ways that helped me get through. First there are the NaNo word sprints on Twitter that were extremely helpful and the dare machine on Young Writers page. And even though I usually didn't follow the dares exactly, I often got inspiration from them. The second thing that was important for me was that, if I found myself and my novel stuck, I'd let it rest for a while. Sometimes I couldn't write for two days in a row - but then the third day I would write 4 or 5k. It was easier for me that way. And also (I guess this is number three:)), there was one thought that kept me going when I got tired and my eyes got sore, and that was: "When this is over, you will have written a book!"
Lessons & tips: I have nothing more to say that hasn't already been said on NaNoWriMo official site, their rules say it all. I found the "no reading and no editing" rule the most helpful.
