How To Rebel Like a Pro

It’s Camp NaNoWriMo, and that means that, even more than usual, you can rebel.

I’ve rebelled a few times – added in extra writing, done a script when it’s meant to be a novel, done two novelettes instead of one biggy. So… If you wanna rebel, how do you do it well?

  • If you’ve got someone who uses the NaNo website like a Bible, don’t tell them. They’ll probably throw a hissy fit and claim that you’ve never won. Lies, you know; but you don’t want them spreading it around! Only own up after you’ve done it, like, 5 years later (ok, maybe not 5 years, but you get the picture).
  • Make sure any writing you add that isn’t part of your novel was only done during NaNo. Don’t add in an article you’ve unearthed from January, or that short story from year 6.
  • Make sure it is writing. Transcripts of conversations don’t count.
  • Remember that you’re not cheating, just…being inventive. Cheating implies you’re using old writing. You’re not. Don’t worry, you’re not a cheater, and there’s still a place for you in the community!
  • Have fun. I can’t stress this enough. Don’t worry if you’re breaking the rules. Flaunt it, baby!

Don’t be afraid to rebel. It’s a laugh.

Flaunt rebellion!

Sorry for the short post!

Questions, comments, thoughts? Shoot! 😀 

Are you a rebeller? How’s your Camp NaNoWriMo going? Tell me, I’d love to know!
