Tomorrow Camp NaNoWriMo begins so here are a few writing tips to help you get motivated for a month full of writing.
Tip #1: Have a Compelling Problem
We already have read hundreds of stories where the princess is rescued by the prince, so create a character and story with a compelling and new problem. Maybe their problem is that they are given a clock that is counting down till the end of the world! Just make it unique and something that gets a reader, and you, excited.
Tip #2: Have Flawed Characters
Nobody is perfect, even if they are a prince or princess in a happy, magical world. Everyone has flaws whether it is they are too proud or just have a chip in their tooth. If your character is too perfect, than your readers will not be able to relate on any level to them.
Tip #3: Stick With It!
Camp NaNoWriMo is a time for you to just write. It is not meant to be perfect so just get out the words. Have too many grammar mistakes, forget a comma, or have too many long sentences! You can edit all of later so just write.

That is all for my very last Camp NaNoWriMo Prep and I hope you enjoyed!
