Last April was a disaster. I’m fully prepared for next month though and I think my experience will definitely be much better. Today I have some cool new things for you guys to try during your Camp NaNoWriMo experience this summer.
Need inspiration? Or a word sprint accessible on your phone?
Try: The Writing Challenge App by Literautas
Why it’s worth it: This app gives you a random prompt when you click the start button to write about. There’s a timer too, which pushes you to write more in a limited amount of time. This helps boost your creativity and write about topics out of your comfort zone.
*Perfect for Notebook writers!*
Google $1.69 ~ https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.literautas.writingchallenge
Itunes: $1.99 ~ https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/writing-challenge-creative/id648978819?mt=8
