In this week’s roundup, we present a couple of lengthy but fascinating pieces for you to dig into! Prepare to crack out the best first draft you can this NaNoWriMo with:

•    Robert Wood at Standout Books, asking the rather controversial question: Is There Such a Thing as a Good MacGuffin?
•    Glen C. Strathy from How to Write a Book Now, with his excellent suggestions and guide for Ways to Bring Your Novel to a Crisis.

That’s it for this week – we don’t want to keep you away from your planning for too long!
