NaNoWriMo Tip One: Tune Off The Internet

Here is the next post I am putting for surviving through NaNoWriMo. (Once again these images I am using I do not own). When you start going into the writing cave for NaNoWriMo

TURN OFF THE INTERNET




Here is why I am telling you this, and I am speaking from experience. The first time I unofficially did NaNoWriMo in 2010, I kept getting onto twitter, and facebook, and I kept getting discouraged when I would see my friends getting such high word counts, and mine was incredibly low. I ended up writing half of one book, and half of another book, which I did end up finishing later on, I just have more tweaks to make to the characters to make them more original. 



That's one tip, don't get on social media too much. When you are in the writing cave, you stay in the writing cave. Turn off your cell phone, T.V., and turn off the internet. You don't need distractions when you are working on a craft. All it will do is distract you. You can pop in every now and then to wish your friends good luck and happy writing with their project, but try very hard not to get on the internet too much.
