Only two more days before
Get ready to make the
most of the next month by having a NaNoWriMo movie night. Watch two or three
films based on bestsellers in your genre. Make scene lists as you watch. Be
sure to select movies that closely follow the plotlines of the novels on which
they are based. Do this, and you’ll understand structure in a much deeper and
comprehensive way. Most importantly, you’ll be preparing your sub-conscious for
the storytelling marathon that is NaNoWriMo—and laying the plotting groundwork to
pound out those pages.
So do yourself a favor, and have a NaNoWriMo Movie Night tonight! It's good for your plot, and a
lot of fun—and the only NaNoWriMo homework that goes with popcorn.
