NaNoWriMo is Almost Here! Get Ready with Brian and Jolene!


Can you believe that NaNoWriMo is less than a week away? We are in countdown mode, people!!

I am very excited about NaNo this year, as my writing partner Jolene Haley and I are once again teaming up! We just released out first book Harrowed into the world a little over a month ago (you can find out more about the here), and we're about to dive into a new story November first. It;s not a sequel to HARROWED though (although that is already in the works)--it's a brand new story. I've already dropped some hints if you've been paying attention on Twitter.

But that's not why I'm writing today. Today I'm here to talk about getting ready for NaNoWriMo. Back in March of this year, Jolene was a guest on the See Brian Write podcast, in an episode about prepping for Camp NaNoWriMo. She had some excellent tips and resources for having a successful month, and we talked about everything from pre-NaNo prep to making it through the month in one piece.

The great news is that pretty much everything we talked about applies to NaNoWriMo proper as well.

So, I'm reposting the episode right here for those that want a little help and inspiration as they prepare for Sunday's writing adventure. You can listen right here:



If you have feeback, questions or just want to talk writing as we all jump into NaNoWriMo together, hit us up on Twitter! I'm at twitter.com/seebrianwrite and Jolene is at twitter.com/jolenehaley.

You can also find the rest of the See Brian Write podcast episodes over on my SoundCloud page. I'll be back early next year with a whole new season of the show.

NOTE: This episode led to Jolene and I writing HARROWED together. Pretty cool, huh?
