I’ve pretty much caught up with NanoWrimo, so yay! I’ve so far had two big observations, this being my first NanoWrimo:
NanoWrimo is a Distraction: Long story (ha!) short, it’s hard for me to concentrate on finishing up the novel I’ve completed (beta readers, editing, planning, etc) while competing with the pressure of NanoWrimo.
NanoWrimo is Freakin’ Fun: It just is. I’ve had this story wrapped in my head for MONTHS and it feels good to let the words flow out. I don’t know how much of it I’ll keep in the final version, but wow does it feel good to write again instead of edit.
Also, I don’t know how I started writing on Wednesdays, but I do have a couple ideas for actual blog posts before the end of the year.
