My NaNoWriMo Tips for 2019

NaNoWriMo is almost upon us!

As you might have seen if you follow me on social media, I am doing NaNoWriMo for the fifth year in a row! I will be participating with the follow-up book to The Part-Time Artist:

Happy, Not Tortured: A Mental Health Guide for Artists and Creatives

Previously, I won NaNoWriMo three times and lost once (last year). I am well used to this challenge and what it takes to make it to the 50K mark. So this year, I’ve decided to share tips all along October.

Every day I post a short video with a tip that helped me face this amazing challenge. I will update this blog post throughout the month to include all the tips.
