I am so far behind the power curve.
Does it help that I have about 10,000 words floating around in my head?
If it doesn’t, it should.
Turkey day is going to slow some people down. I need to gear up though.
I can say… this story is getting good!
To those doing this along with me… keep pushing. We are in the home streatch. Get as much done as you can. Get as close to that goal as you can. Momentum and motivation are everything! The sense of accomplishment on December 1st is why I am doing this. I am tired of having half finished stories. I want to see something to the end. Even if it means I have to write 3,000 plus words per day everyday until the end of this month. I will do so until this story gets finished!
Hi everyone! Just wanted to give you an update.
Day 1 was a wash for me. I spent it reviewing what I already had written.
Day 2 was amazing though. Through a really tough mental period I was able to pull some ideas while meditating on some music.
FYI I am working on two novels at once. Well they may end up being novellas… but whatever. I have to multitask. If I get blocked with one I can work on the other while I find my way out of any traps I fell into.
Don’t be afraid to back up. Think of this like driving… sometimes you have to go a little in reverse to get to where you can move straight ahead.
I have been on the fence about participating because I failed miserably last year. Then I spent the end of October reading a huge portion of my past works. The unfinished stories really bugged the hell out of me. Not one for quitting, I decided that I am going to give it a go again.
I have two projects I am working on, to satisfy my insane need to multitask. My goal is to finish at least one of them by the end of the month. I will probably stray from the typical way NaNoWriMo is done but I am going to document it all here on this blog. I am not posting the actual novel on here. But I will post my daily progress starting this evening. The goal is 50,000 words by the end of the month. The hard part for me will be the NO EDITING rule. (Pray for me ya’ll!)
I think you should all give it a go with me. The website is http://www.nanowrimo.org/ and you should go there and register. There is all types of stuff on there. In some areas they have meet ups. There are tons of tips.
For all my poet friends and followers… why not write a poem a day for thirty days. I am going to continue to post prompts up. I will try to post one a day for those who need inspiration. At the end of the month you could have a wonderful poetry book!
If you write non-fiction, you can still do this challenge. Write your memoir. Write about your favorite topic.
The key… JUST WRITE!!!
Feel free to comment on posts and let me know how you are doing.
