For anyone doing NaNoWriMo, how's it going? I kept up beautifully for three whole days. But now I'm behind by about 700 words. That means I have to write 2367 to get even today. Probably not gonna happen!
But, if you're having trouble meeting your goal, here are some tips, thanks to our CenTex group's brainstorming session Monday (when we were supposed to be writing).
Have a character who repeats everything said to him or her.
Use him or her instead of him. Or her. Use that a lot.
Do not use incomplete sentences. Insert the whole subject, verb thing, always, at all times.
Never use contractions, spell everything out.
Use several small words wherever you can instead of one big one.
Describe everything fully. I know, this is bad writing, but you can take it out later. After you've fulfilled your goal. Oops. I mean: You can do this after you have fulfilled your writing goal and after you have met your word count. (See how much better that is?)
Any other ideas on padding--I mean reaching the word count?
