Plot the Beginning of Your Novel, Memoir, Screenplay

Take a moment to assess where you are in writing your story now that you're 4 days into NaNoWriMo.

To ensure that you stay on track and write a solid beginning, middle and end by the end of November, stand back from your writing for a minute and consider the following.

Tuesday marks the day you and your protagonist enter the exotic world.

Begin opening up to the idea of pulling the beginning together so you're sure to be writing the End of the Beginning scene on Monday.
