Write 1 nonfiction book (or more):
Write a short book or a full-length book. Here are 8 short nonfiction book formats that allow you to easily start and finish a book—maybe two—in a month.
- Tip Book: features a list of 10-101 tips. Some tip books simply offer a long list of tips with many per page; each tip might be just a sentence long. Or you can include a paragraph or two of explanation per tip.
- List Book: includes 10-101 things a reader needs to know on a subject. Each item might include a short informative essay to go with the item on the list. (Think “101 Ways to…”)
Feeling left out? With all the buzz about NaNoWriMo, it's OK to feel a little jealous and left out.
You don't need to participate in NaNoWriMo if you write fiction. I participated several years ago; it was fun. This year, I'm so tied up with fiction projects I can't take on another one. The NaNoWriMo spirit makes me enthusiastic about my fiction, however, even if I'm not taking part. I'm joining thousands of other writers, who are also working on novels.
What if you have no inclination towards fiction?
That's completely fine. In the above article, you'll see that you can get into the NaNoWriMo spirit too. Write away.:-)
