Reading article after article to stuff your brain with all the writing knowledge you can absorb is certainly a good use of energy… but sometimes you just want to sit for 10 minutes with a nice warm drink and enjoy a video.

Today, we present a video featuring Rachael Stephen (and her less-than-amused dog), as she talks you through what we think are some very useful tips for approaching NaNoWriMo like a career novelist.

Rachael is a strong advocate for planning your novel in advance – so pantsers, consider yourselves warned. There may be a clash of opinions here!

If you enjoy the video, take a look at Rachael’s YouTube channel for more writing tips and NaNoWriMo-themed content.
