How to Survive NaNoWriMo: The Fandom Edition

It's that time of the year again when insane writers attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It's National Novel Writing Month time. This may seem like an insurmountable task, and as the month passes by, participants may start to feel overwhelmed. But have no fear! The best and brightest minds from the world's most famous fandoms are here to give you advice on how to survive NaNoWriMo. So whether you're a participant or you know someone who is attempting this grand feat, here's a little advice, fandom style.

When you sit down to write, prepare yourself by saying:

Remember to wield your pen like Wonder Woman wields a sword, and you'll be sure to slay that word count goal.

If you're a write-with-music kind of person, you have to make sure you find the right jams. Nothing makes monster hunting writing hard when the music is distracting; just ask Dean Winchester.

If there are too many people distracting you, take a little advice from Sherlock and say...

Or if you need a little help, call on your friends, Avengers style.

When things get tough, take a break for...

Or share a pint with friends.

If you get stuck, make sure you have a back up plan, like Merlin.


Or take a page out of Rick Grimes' book and write about stuff and thangs.

If you make a mistake, do as Picard would and then move on.

When in doubt, go to the library...


But overall, as you write, don't forget...

And may the odds be ever in your favor.

Good luck, NaNoWriMoers!
