“You write. That’s the hard bit that nobody sees. You write on the good days and you write on the lousy days. Like a shark, you have to keep moving forward or you die… What matters right now are the words, one after another. Find the next word. Write it down. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.”
– NaNoWriMo’s Pep Talk from Neil Gaiman.
It’s here, writers! NaNoWriMo is here!
It’s the time of the year where we focus our creative energies more than we ever did before; we flip open our journals and scribble, we power on our computers and clack away. Dust off those novels that are hidden in your desk drawers!
National Novel Writing Month is here!
For those who are new to the month-long writing fest, here’s the basic rule: write 50,000 words by December 1st. (It’s basically the size of a novella, or small novel.)
Here are my personal goals:
1. Accomplish editing my novel beyond chapter 7.
2. Churn out 50,000 words for the latter chapters.
3. RULE at managing my time; fit in some amount of writing every day!
These are the things I have been needing to work on most with my novel. I need to get my butt in my chair, every single day, and finish this storyline! It’s so strong in my mind, I need it strong on paper now!
By God, I am going to do this!
Good luck to all writers participating in NaNoWriMo this month, whether through the website or by yourselves! (Website is here, for those interested: NaNoWriMo.com )
