Episode 028 | NaNo Panel – Week One
This month you’re invited to be a part of a virtual accountability group! Join our panel every week to hear how our NaNoWriMo efforts are going. Hopefully, you’ll pick up a trick that will help make things easier for you or simply gain a sense of camaraderie.
This week, Robin Knabel stopped by to chat about the first week. Among other things, we touched on:
Sarra Cannon’s HB90 Method
The Goals-Motive-Conflict-Stakes Character Development Tool
The Basic Premise Tool: “Once upon a time _______. One day, _______. And because of that __________. And then__________. Until finally __________. The End
The IDEA (Ignore Delegate Automate Eliminate) Method
Pomodoros (AKA Time Sprints)
The Sticky-Note Trick for Reducing Interruptions
Experimenting with Different Methods, Times, Locations
The Coffitivity App
James Scott Bell’s Notecards Method
Taking Yourself and Your Work Seriously So That Others Will, Too
It’s a busy month, so I’m keeping the notes simple. No links this week, I’m afraid. If you’re doing NaNo, come find me and be my buddy! I’m listed as H. Dair Brown.
Catch you next week! Until then…
Happy Writing, People!
