EDIT 10/31/12 - I've edited this piece to streamline it and make it flow a bit better. I also had the pleasure of meeting several people from NaNoWriMo a couple weeks ago and they're going to publish this on their website soon!

Although HOW TO WRITE WITHOUT EDITING.. by `ATrue is intended as a guide for those who even now are braving National Novel Writing Month, its lessons are universal to budding novelists everywhere, at any time. ( Suggested by Magic-fan and Featured by Memnalar )

I epicly failed NaNoWriMo last year, couldn't shut up the editor. He was barking more than my dog does :XD: These tips have given me the hope that I might get close to finishing this year. Thank you!

This is brilliant. Would pasting a white sheet of paper over the monitor help with blindfolding Mr. Editor? Sure can't read anything, but if anything happens while typing, at least the blurry image of pop-up messages are still somewhat visible through the paper.

sure! As long as you can see if that were to happen I see no reason why not. :)

..I'm SO using the font-trick, I'm terrible at shutting up my inner editor!

I'm going to be attempting NaNo for the first time this year and I was kind of worrying about how not to stop and just be like "NO! IT'S WRONG!" but I think this will help heaps, thank you!
