Ok, yes, as of late my mind is turning more and more towards Nov 1 (sorry, I refuse to get up at 11:59 pm so I can start NaNo ).
Today I'm posting about some helpful sites that'll get even the most confused writer on track. In theory ;).
Now even if you're not doing NaNo (what- ya chicken? ) these sites might help you start that next book, your first book, or do clean up on aisle 9 (aka editing). If you know of any great sites in the similar vein as these listed- please add them!
A nice over view of plot construction
Alexandra has a ton of blog posts about prepping for NaNo- not to mention all the other great writing info
Ok-this is the Mecca of fun generators- GREAT if you get stuck! (Or just want to play )
Please add to this list!
ADDED: ok, a friend of mine has a GREAT blog about tips! http://janettait.com/wordpress/2011/10/26/tips-for-acing-nanowrimo/
