Reviews

"No Plot? No Problem! offers suggestions on how to participate in something as crazy as writing a short novel in a single month, as well as why you'd want to do so. Baty gives practical tips peppered with humor, recognizing that this endeavor is both enormous and somewhat ridiculous, but still worth doing. Baty walks you through things like how to find time to write, what tools and foods you should keep handy, and the benefits of planning (or not planning) your novel ahead of time.

The second half of the book is a week-by-week guide, intended to walk you through the first week exuberance, second week slump, and so on. Baty's been at this for 15 years already, so he knows what he's talking about-plus he has quotes and advice from many other NaNoWriMo winners as well."
