Today’s NaNoWriMo tips is a bit…different. We’ve all been working hard and this one is just a bit more fun than usual. After all, you’ve been working hard for weeks now and you deserve it!

So, we all know by now that distractions are the enemy and should be avoided at all costs, right?

But what if there was a way to get a tiny, minuscule distraction as a fun reward for reaching a certain word count? The kind of break from your writing that really is a reward and not an excuse to stop writing for ten minutes?

Let us you introduce to Written Kitten!

You write on the site, choosing how often you deserve a reward, every 100, 200, 500 or 1000 words. When you reach your goal the site will show you a picture of a kitten, randomly chosen from flickr.

Sounds like a fun way to change up your NaNoWriMo writing, but you’re more of a dog person? Not to worry, you can choose to be rewarded with puppy or bunny pictures instead.

Have some fun!
