I have to admit, this year’s NaNo has really suffered from my lack of bandwidth.
Going to the writein was far more helpful than I would have expected–not only did I write over 2k words at the write-in, it reminded me that if i just time myself and focus on spelling later, well, i can get a lot done.
In the end it is important to remember (at least for me) that… well I’m going to agonize over word choice at some point. Because that’s what I do. I didn’t write poetry for years for no reason at all.
But I don’t have to agonize over word choice at the beginning.
This is a story. Tell their story.
