Change your mood

Here’s a quick tip for you, to keep you from wanting to throw your novel away. This happened to me every time I did NaNoWriMo, and every time I’ve managed to stop myself (phew!). 

When you feel the urge to trash your novel, take a step back, go to Netflix, YouTube or any other streaming site (or your DVD collection) and find something you’ve found hilarious the first time you saw it. 

My go-to is Friends. 

Put the movie/show on, and laugh your ass off. 

If you aren’t sick of your novel yet, take some time to make a list of things to see when you are. 

Because looking at your novel through eyes of someone who just had a lot of fun may just be the thing you need to get your writing mode activated again!
