30 Days of #NaNoWriMo - Day 5

#NaNoWriMo Day 5


Remember that even the most evil of "bad guys" in a story is the hero in his own narrative. Cardboard characters are as flat as the cliches you base them on. Likewise, "perfect" protagonists are harder for the reader to love. Give them flaws, but don't make them assholes.

  1. I've written a couple of novels for NaNo that made it to publication. Even if you don't pub what you write for NaNo, it's still great experience for sitting down and just doing it. Get out of your head and write. Best practice in the world.
