There are several similarities between the 3by3 Writing Method and NaNo.
First is the dedication. Certainly to finish a novel in month, concentration and focus are required. The first part of the 3by3 Writing Method is a dedicated, daily time and place that is used solely for writing. Although this is a little more specific than just “get it done in a month” a daily regimen would need to be required to finish 50,000 words in 30 days!
The second similarity is that the 3by3 is designed to go right through the first draft without running back and rewriting the first three chapters over and over. Certainly the time constraint of NaNoWriMo does not allow the writer the luxury to go over and over the beginning of the story or it will never get finished.
Finally the 3by3 writing method does not pretend to have a final result of a finished novel in the first pass, neither does NaNo. The end result of November’s writing spree is a first draft that needs to be polished. 3by3 is the same – to get a bulk of the story down so that it can be massaged into a fine piece of work.
The differences? Briefly, 3by3 expects the first draft to take longer than a month, 3by3 is to get a books published and finally, 3by3 deals with the publishing and marketing aspects of a finished book.
lots of good stuff
