From the founder of National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, No Plot? No Problem! covers how to tackle writing a novel in just 30 days from; preparations to inspiration and motivation tricks to keep you going and ends with comments on editing and getting published.

A useful tool for those crazy people who want to try taking part in this writing frenzy that happens every November but also a valuable tool for writers to use throughout the year to stop procastination and writers block.

The book is divided into two main sections; A Round-Trip Ticket to Novel-land: gearing up for your writing Adventure! and Write here! Write Now! A frantic, Fantastic Week-by-Week Overview to Bashing out Your Book.

The text throughout the book is broken up by tip boxes, useful statistics, examples etc... making it easy to use for quick reference.

A must have for all writers, NaNo and non!
