Hammering out a first draft of 50,000 words in one month is most writers’ dream. Planning to undertake NaNoWriMo, however, already shows commitment that you’re taking your writing seriously. But once the writing starts in earnest, many writers can face obstacles, distractions and maybe even be tempted to give up when they’re feeling creatively blocked and maybe a little fatigued. Perhaps it’s even you.
Fortunately, Stop Procrastinating, the productivity website, has surveyed 2000 NaNoWriMo writers ahead of this year’s challenge to find out what kept them going until the very end. The findings are enlightening and practical. From undertaking a little planning before hand, to doing a little writing on your lunch break and learning how to write anywhere, the strategies are sure to help many undertaking the challenge this year to successfully reach the 50,000 goal.
Stop Procrastinating has assembled all the results in the infographic below.
