Here’s a link dump if you’re interested in NaNoWriMo

1 Comment

I’m sitting on this virtual pile of NaNoWriMo-related links and it would be a shame not to share them. Categorized for your convenience.

Non-writing but super useful

  • Svenja Liv’s word-tracking spreadsheets are awesome and quadruple useful if you’re planning on setting a different word count goal.
  • Scrivener is offering a free trial of its fancy writing software (if you’ve never used Scrivener, I recommend also pasting your novel in a word-processing doc as you go in case you run into exporting issues 10 minutes before the deadline. I speak from experience).

If you’re really procrastinating

There’s more (loads more) but I need to finish my outline before Thursday. If you have any links to add, share them in the comments below!

  1. Yarny.me is a wonderful place to write your novel. I prefer it to any word processor and it’s what I used to write my Nano novel last year. Some features include…
    -No distractions. As you write, all the side/tool bars fade away so it’s just you and the blank page.
    -Tabs to organize by sections and chapters (my last novel had 3 parts, so it helped to separate them, as well as put each chapter where it needed to go). You can also name them.
    -Tabs for People, Places, and Things. In each of these tabs, you can create different files for reference. If you forgot what eye color or last name you gave a character, or the color you made a building, you can look it up there (assuming you put that information in the tabs).
    -Since you get your own personal account (where you can add as many novels/projects as you like) and it’s a website, you can access your novel on any computer, assuming you have internet. No need to travel with your computer or carry around a flash drive.

    I just highly recommend it! Again, yarny.me
