I haven’t always been a huge fan of NaNoWriMo, and in fact I’m still a bit ambivalent about it. But, as in institution it’s clearly not going away and, to be fair, some pretty good books have come out of it. So rather than critiquing it, this year I’ve worked up a summary of the main points in my Writing Archetypes series, to help NaNo fans write on the fly.
This is geared primarily toward younger writers wanting to do fantasy or sci-fi, but it should help anyone. Enjoy!
