But I think this book can also give good tips for typical writing, too, so I posted it separate from the Nano thread:

Free Book: NaNo for the New and the Insane

Once again this year, I'm offering a copy of a book that others have found helpful. NaNo for the New and the Insane is a collection that includes many tips for the pre-NaNo work and for how to get the most out of your November writing.

If you would like a copy got to my website:

http://www.lazette.net/

You'll find the book listed on the right side of the page, nearly to the bottom under "Free Stuff."

I hope you guys find it helpful again this year!

Of course, if I read a book about writing I'd be admitting to myself that yes, I am considering doing it slightly more seriously, and might conceivably write something that isn't fanfic at some point...

Nah, what the heck. Sounds interesting. I can always run screaming if I discover I don't understand any of the words Shocked
