Dreaming Up A NANO Day's Worth of Words

Find the idea of how to come up with enough words to get that first 1667 words a day for National Novel Writing Month (November) a problem? Try this! Choose three times during the day to think about your story in small bits. For instance, while you're getting dressed in the morning, or in the shower, or brushing your teeth, or eating your breakfast, come up what could take place on two pages. Double spaced with an average of perhaps 290 words per page (1" margins all around) this should supply you with 580 words. Then at lunch time decide what could happen on the next two pages, chronologically, or in another character's point of view (POV). This will give you fuel for another 280 words and
