Episode #21: 10 Useful Ways to Approach NaNoWriMo

It’s episode 21 of POW Podcast UK and with NaNoWriMo 2018 just round the corner, Marc and Jen look at 10 useful ways to approach National Novel Writing Month. 

Are you planning to write 50,000 words in November to create a novel? Do you need some help with how to plan your month and stay motivated? If so, this is the episode for you!

Listen to us on
or right here...

We used NaNoWriMo in 2017 with the aim of writing 5,000 words each, and we’re planning to do the same this year. We give you some ideas to help you along the way from our experience and other great tips we found about organizing your writing. We don’t want you to feel like it’s a chore, so follow our advice to really enjoy NaNoWriMo and the community it creates this year.

We talk about pacing yourself, freewriting, using practical support and much more. We also manage to digress into our tsundokus, some terrible singing, even worse inventions and the importance of making sure your dinner choices take exactly 25 minutes to cook so you can write a book while you wait.

Let us know if you’re doing NaNoWriMo at @powpodcastuk during November!

What else can you find in this episode?
  • The motivational effect of Disney songs, apart from when Rapunzel makes you feel bad about not doing enough stuff
  • The welcome return of Granny Flymo
  • Do what you like! Do. What. You Like. (No need to ask me).
  • Jen’s Dragon's Den invention to help artists with bad backs
  • There’s no place for ego in NaNoWriMo
  • The writing guide we refer to is Ready Set Novel and the ISBN is 1452101728
