It’s about that time, eh? The thirty days of parole for our usually restrained brains.
National Novel Writing Month!!!
My brain was a bit disheveled, squinting in the sunlight, unsure what he should do with all the freedom. But like a fat kid in a bacon house, my brain’s starting to tear things up.
I’ve been writing quite a bit the past three days, thankfully, and I’m looking forward to interacting with the NaNoWriMo community for inspiration and laughs. The periodic emails from the staff are a great start; if you haven’t yet, and you’ve got a potential novel burning in your heart, mosey on down to http://www.nanowrimo.org and sign up. Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today.
For this month I’ve vowed to abandon my usually perfectionist tendencies, which have kept me tinkering with a single chapter for weeks on occasion. But not this time! Just gotta keep my eyes on the 50,000 word goal.
For those of you who have finished a National Novel Writing Month in the past or are knee deep in one for the first time, what tips can you share for “winning” it by December 1st?
