So how’s your NaNoWriMo going? Do you have more words today than yesterday? Then you’re doing okay. Five words or five thousand, every step is meaningful.
I listened to a mini episode of Writing Excuses recently that talked about this. The biggest thing they stresse is people write differently. One of the authors is from the podcast is an award winner and she’s never managed to complete NaNoWriMo.
For some people this month will help them finally complete that novel they’ve always wanted to write. For others, it will simply stress them out and make them depressed when they see all the progress everyone else is making. It’s important to understand that NaNoWriMo isn’t there to punish you; it’s a tool. If you can use it to improve yourself and your writing, do so. If it’s not what you need, don’t feel discouraged. The point is to have fun writing. If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right.
Also, Weebly is still out for me. I’m concerned that I’m getting so comfortable posting with my phone and mini keyboard...
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
