NRHH Tips and Tricks for OTMs!
  • Collect quotes about the person or program to include in your OTM

 

  • Write in a narrative style that paints a picture for the reader

 

  • Type your OTMs on a Word document, then copy and paste onto the OTM website.  Sometimes the website likes to crash and delete your writing

 

  • Reading one paragraph is BLAH BLAH BLAH!  Break your OTM up into more than one paragraph to ensure your reader doesn’t get bored.  Plus, it makes it easier to read!

 

  • Use month specific examples and events because it is an Of the Month, not an Of the Person/Program

 

  • Write about something/someone you are passionate about! An OTM without heart is trash!

 

  • Remember that these OTMs are public and can be ready by ANYONE, including the individuals you write about! So make them amazing!

 

  • Proofread your OTM before submitting it to ensure that spelling and grammar are correct!

 

  • Start your OTM at least two weeks in advance to the due date to ensure your stress level stays low and the quality of the OTM stays high!
