November is National Novel Writing Month. I’ve never participated in the official month, but I did follow the excellent system proposed by Chris Baty in his book No Plot? No Problem! to write a novel in a month. I’m a big believer in creativity boot camp as a way to spur ideas and to get things done, and it turns out it is possible, and quite exhilarating, to write a novel in a month.
So, in honor of NaNoWriMo, I’m posting these eight writing tips from one of my favorite writers, Flannery O’Connor. Her work isn’t for everyone, but I love it.
In fact, I love it so much I can hardly bear to read it — does that ever happen to you?
