No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days

Chris Baty, founder of the wildly successful literary marathon known as National Novel Writing Month, has completely revised and expanded his definitive handbook for extreme noveling. Chris pulls from over 15 years of results-oriented writing experience to pack this compendium with new tips and tricks, ranging from week-by-week quick reference guides to encouraging advice from authors and much more. His motivating mix of fearless optimism and practical solutions to common excuses gives both first-time novelists and results-oriented writers the kick-start they need to embark on an exhilarating creative adventure.

Chris Baty

Chris Baty is a writer best known for creating NaNoWriMo (or "National Novel Writing Month"), in 1999, wherein participants aim to write an entire novel during the thirty days of November. Participants who complete 50,000 words during this time are deemed to be "winners" in this non-competitive group endeavor, where quality of writing takes a distant second place to quantity.

Baty has written at least 50,000 words during NaNoWriMo each year since 1999, when 21 people participated. It has since grown to include over forty thousand participants in 2004, and getting bigger each year. In 2005 fifty-nine thousand people participated and more than ten thousand succeeded. Apart from a series of "deeply mediocre" manuscripts, he has written a NaNoWriMo handbook, entitled "No Plot? No Problem!", a guide aimed at high-speed novelists.

In addition to founding NaNoWriMo, Baty has written music reviews and journalism for SF Weekly and the East Bay Express. A graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the University of Chicago, he lives in the San Francisco Bay area.
