National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is right around the corner, and that might be daunting, it might be exciting, it might be both. Whether you’ve participated in NaNoWriMo before or if this is your first year, then you’ll always been on the look out for things that you can turn to for inspiration, or tips and tricks, for help, or for simply a bit of a break from trying to kill that character off.
This year I thought I’d gather together as many NaNoWriMo and Writing links as I possibly can to help you out. I know for sure that as I’ve been preparing throughout October for this year, I’ve definitely been to so many of these sites, and they’re super helpful.

Make sure you check out what groups in your local area are doing. NaNo meet ups happen all of the world, where participants come and hang out, sit in a cafe and write write write. They bounce ideas off each other, and help each other with plot holes and character gripes.
Another place for handy tips is Pinterest. Check out my Writing Board, and this collection of Storyboards. Storyboards are a great board to create on Pinterest to collect images and photography pieces on what your story might look like, or be like.
I hope these have been useful for you, and I wish you all the best for November!
