NaNoWriMo Tip Four: Inspiration

Happy Fall!

So it's time for another NaNoWriMo is how to get some inspiration for when you get stuck writing the draft of your novel.  It has happened to me before and I have found some ways to get a small spark of inspiration.

Depending on what you are writing about you'd be surprised at the amount of things you can find on the internet.

Pintrest is a great way to get some inspiration for when you can't think of what to write next. I go on Pintrest a lot when I get stuck on writing and I can't think of what to write next, or how to keep the story going, or describe certain things. But be warned, Pintrest can get addicting.

Tumblr is also a good way to get some inspiration for the story you are writing. Sometimes just looking at a picture will remind me of what I wanted to write next, and I will get inspired by clips, music, or pictures. If you need a certain picture of your character you can find one on Pintrest, and the pictures you have of your characters can help you. I always find myself getting pictures of actors in my mind who resemble the way I see the characters. I'm a very visual person so having the Hollywood pictures of the actors help me with the story.

Even thought you should turn off the internet when you are writing, it can be useful when you can't seem to think of what to write next, or when you need a picture of someone who resembles the characters. The internet can give you some little sparks. Hopefully some of these tips will help you out during your writing.

Happy Writing!
