This Isn’t Even My Final Draft

31 Nov 30 2017

NaNoWriMo, as most of us are aware, stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s a chance for budding writers and seasoned professionals alike to test their mettle against the prospect of writing a novel-length story before the end of November. Although this sounds like a time where structure and revision are kept to a minimum, some folks want to flesh out an entire world within thirty days.

Enter the stalwart folks over at Reddit, TV Tropes, and the NaNoWriMo forum! These visionaries have tons of questions and ideas with regards to world-building, and they won’t rest until you’ve written a story for them! Join us as we discover the pitfalls of writing when you make a story with no plot and engage in non-stop trope abuse.
