About this Episode

Whether you’ve just decided it’s finally time to write that book you’ve been thinking about on your own or you’ve been bit by the NaNoWriMo bug, starting a novel can be intimidating!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a pantser (writing by the seat of your pants), a plotter, or something in between, there’s still stuff you can do to prepare yourself before you start writing.

  1. Outlining (it doesn't have to be detailed)
  2. Beat Sheets!
  3. Mood boards
  4. Character Sheets
  5. Creating a list of names
  6. World Building

7. Minimizing real world distractions

Thanks for listening! I'll be back next Monday with more rambling ideas about writing.
