Well, writers, we’re five days into this NaNoWriMo thing. How are you doing? At the moment I’m sitting on 13,051 words, ahead of where I thought I’d be at this time. The secret? All that pre-writing work I did in September and October!
If you’re falling behind, don’t give up! Do some extra brainstorming, take an hour or so off of work, and get back up on that horse! Find a big block of time on a Saturday morning or a Sunday afternoon where you can get away from your life and go give life to your characters.
If you’re not part of this wacky writing experiment, how is your November going? Are you enjoying the last vestiges of fall? Are you starting to fret over Christmas? Are you taking the time to eat some s’mores?
November only comes once a year (thankfully <–pun not intended) so milk it for all it’s worth!
