I’m Back On Track

by bdhesse

I somehow managed to finish that story yesterday. I’m now able to write the next story, which will be under 1500 words, so it’s more than managable. Hopefully I’ll catch up with my other writing so that I will be ready for NaNoWriMo.
I’ve never tried NaNoWriMo before. What advise would you give a first timer, if you are a seasoned veteran? I know how many words I’ll need to write, and I know writing daily is a must, but what about pacing? And motivation? I’m also wondering about the posting your book to win thing. Who has done that? What are the advantages and disadvantages of posting your book? I’m not sure I’d be totally comfortable doing so, but it sounds like it’s necessary to “win.”
