NaNoWriMo is just around the corner so this post/podcast is quite timely. Those who Nano are already familiar with Grant Faulker, Executive Director of NaNoWriMo, so how cool is it that The Creative Penn interviewed him! Got any NaNoWRiMo survival tips?

How To Write 50,000 Words In A Month With Grant Faulkner
June 27, 2016 by Joanna Penn
NaNoWriMo changed my writing life in 2009 when I wrote the first few thousand words of what eventually became Stone of Fire. Writing a speedy first draft without self-censoring is still what I aim for with my books, and in today’s show I discuss how it can be done with Grant Faulkner.
In the intro, I discuss the potential impact of the UK Brexit decision on traditional publishing, and on indie authors. Plus, my latest book, The Successful Author Mindset, launches this week and will be available in ebook, print, workbook, and audiobook editions.
