Furiously Writing Your Novel? Celebrate NaNoWriMo with a Contest!

Posted By Flames On November 3, 2012 @ 10:26 am In Contest | 22 Comments

[1]This month, aspiring (and existing) novelists everywhere begin their 50,000 word jaunt for National Novel Writing Month [2], otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. 50,000 words, or the equivalent of half a standard novel, translates to writing roughly 1,666 words every day. For writers with a full-time or even a part-time job, furiously scribbling five to seven pages of text can seem rather daunting — especially if you’re not sure how (or what) to write. Not sure if the snowflake method is best? Or if your dialogue techniques are up to par?

Flames Rising and DriveThruFiction can help!

In honor of novelists everywhere, we’re offering a contest to receive $10 gift certificates to DriveThruFiction.com [3]!

Some of the excellent writing advice and how-to guides for authors at DriveThruFiction include:

On Writing Horror [1]
2012 Horror Writer’s Market [4]
Bullies, Bastards, and Bitches: How To Write The Bad Guys Of Fiction [5]
The Guide to Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction [6]
The Art of War for Writers [7]
20 Master Plots and How to Build Them [8]
Writing the Paranormal Novel [9]
Eighth Day Genesis: A Worldbuilding Codex [10]
Worldbuilding For Writers, Gamers and Other Creators [11]
Formatting and Selling eBooks [12]

To enter is extremely simple: all you have to do is give your fellow Flames Rising readers your best snippet of writing advice in the comments below by the end of November. There’s three chances to win, so if you need help with your novel? Consider entering our contest!
