Rules for Nanowrimo

  1. Don’t delete.
  2. Know where the story is going, even if you don’t know how it’s going to get there (yet)
  3. When in doubt, take a nap.
  4. It doesn’t count as procrastinating if you’re working through plot snags while you do it.
  5. Cookies are brain food. Have a cookie.
  6. Nothing gets words written faster than BIC (Butt In Chair).
  7. Selfcare is important. So is hygiene. No one wants to sit next to someone at a write in who hasn’t showered since Oct. 31.
  8. Thou shall back up thine work.
  9. Thou shall have a backup of thine backup.
  10. If all else fails, take a walk around the block.
Hermes would like me to remind you that petting the cat is also essential to Nanowrimo survival.
