"No Plot? No Problem! offers suggestions on how to participate in something as crazy as writing a short novel in a single month, as well as why you'd want to do so. Baty gives practical tips peppered with humor, recognizing that this endeavor is both enormous and somewhat ridiculous, but still worth doing. Baty walks you through things like how to find time to write, what tools and foods you should keep handy, and the benefits of planning (or not planning) your novel ahead of time.
The second half of the book is a week-by-week guide, intended to walk you through the first week exuberance, second week slump, and so on. Baty's been at this for 15 years already, so he knows what he's talking about-plus he has quotes and advice from many other NaNoWriMo winners as well."
About the Author

This book allows you to set aside doubts and perfectionism, so that you can get that first draft on paper.
I at first felt slightly disappointed when I discovered that the book was related to the National Novel Writing Month of November. At the moment we're a long way from November and reading his writing had inspired me. Then he made it clear that it's OK to try the 50,000-words-in-a-month project during any month of the year.
For a cold-weather month like February, it seems like a challenge that will fit right in; so I recommend the book to people who are spending extra time indoors during this season. As for myself, I'm going through it a second time as I involve myself in the writing process.
This is a fun and funky kit for participants in the National Novel Writing Month experience (NaNoWriMo), which takes place every November. Note that although it includes a short (44 page) book, it is not the same as the author's full-length book of the same title. I view "No Plot? No Problem" (the full length book) as an important asset to NaNoWriMo. This kit, however, is strictly for those who want to have fun with stickers, buttons, a rolled-up contract, and more. It is for those who want to go all out for NaNoWriMo, and who want some "toys" to help them have an even better time. If money is tight, spend it elsewhere, as you can make most of these things yourself. If you don't mind the cost, and know that it's all just for fun, then buy and enjoy it as I did.
In this video I open the kit and show you everything inside. The video is just under 4 minutes.
