I’m probably not, just because I’ve got a few projects in pretty good motion already and I don’t want to go on another comic hiatus.
Tips for NaNo….Hmm….
I would say write fast and sloppy. Like just get that first draft out instead of focusing on nitpicking and making things perfect as you go. You’ll have to do a lot of revision but you’re a lot less likely to hit writer’s block that way. Just…do not slow down basically.
But at the same time, be healthy, and don’t burn yourself out. Like…making the end word count shouldn’t be your biggest goal. NaNo is a great tool for building discipline and racking up word counts but if it gets too stressful, just remember it’s not the end of the world if you don’t “win.” You’ll still have a crap ton of words you didn’t have before.
ALSO inside advice from when I worked in a lit agency: If you’re thinking of submitting something, do NOT do it in December. Agencies and publishers get flooded with hastily-finished first drafts and they do not like it. Make sure you take time to revise once November’s over.
That’s all I got! Feel free to chime in with tips if you have any, ducks!
And good luck babe! Have fun! <3
