I am so stupidly excited to share today’s blog post with you. I’ve been working on something for a long, long while now, and it seems impossible that I finally get to tell you what it is: a Preptober workbook to help you kick butt with your prewriting and show NaNoWriMo who’s boss!
I’ve been doing this writing thing for a while now, and after years of trial and error, reading all the best books on the writing craft, and buying other creators’ products, I know what works for me and what definitely does not.
One thing that I’ve found is when an outline template or prewriting method is too stringent and structured, I’ll eventually throw my hands in the air and abandon the entire thing. (Shoutout to my minimalist outline for helping me embrace my inner Planner!)
With that in mind, I’ve developed a 31-day prep plan that focuses on three main aspects of storytelling — character, plot, and setting — but gives you the freedom to determine how you go about your planning. Since I’m all about helping others succeed and want to create a little Preptober community, I’m giving the entire workbook away for free! All you have to do is click the button below, tell me where to send the workbook (I promise not to make you regret it with any spammy emails), and you’ll get a downloadable PDF straight to your email inbox.
Ready to make your NaNoWriMo dreams come true?!
I’ll be using my Preptober workbook to prepare for NaNoWriMo this year, and you can follow along with my journey (and tell me about your own) on Instagram. Use #AspiringPreptober so I can see and interact with your posts!
