Writing is harder than it looks: NaNoWriMo 2010

I am hard at work on an outline for my 2010 NaNoWriMo project. This is so much harder than I had anticipated! I should have known, as creative writing projects all through school was worse than pulling teeth. I'm attempting to write a dystopian young adult novel this year. The first four or five chapters are all set, but after that it's going to be pretty tough.

Is anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year? Any tips and tricks of the trade?

  1. I'm going to try NaNo for the first time this year. I've written a couple novels previously, but haven't forced myself to pen one in a month before! I usually try to do an outline in the beginning, but things always deviate a lot anyway. ;) I think the trick is knowing how things will end. As long as you've got that down, you can muddle your way along and find a path to that spot eventually!
