I have already discovered that this year is going to be very different than last year. When I participated last year in NaNoWriMo, I was so focused on getting my daily word count, I was not even a little bit tempted to edit as I went. Not true this year… it has been a constant … More I may have missed posting the first day but I didn’t miss writing…
Things I have learned in the last two days. First: I am SOOO glad I finished my Novel for NaNoWriMo before Thanksgiving! Second: If you are not finished with your NaNoNovel before Thanksgiving, you will most likely have to chose between writing and shopping. It is incredibly hard to do both. I had planned to … More Things I have learned about Thanksgiving, Shopping and NaNoWriMo.
Yes I just have to crow about it a bit! I’m excited! Celebrate with me! Oh man…now I’ll never get to sleep. Guess I’ll have to write some more! © J.C. Morrows 2013 Disclaimer: I have no control over the ads you may see below. I am sorry if any of the content is inappropriate. … More I WON!
I have a theory. I think the weekends are so much harder for some of us because of how families typically structure their weeks. For most people who work through the week, they struggle to get their minimum word count each night and a lot of nights, they don’t make it. They’re tired and stressed … More Why are weekends so hard?
I have given up all pretense of having much other than NaNoWriMo on my mind this month. Yesterday I talked about the different NaNoPersonas I’ve encountered in this, my first year of NaNoWriMo. Today I am going to talk about the different goals we all have and how they may differ from the beginning of … More NaNoGoals – What are yours?
Over the last three weeks I have learned that there are literally dozens of different NaNoPersonas. But just for grins & giggles, lets talk about a few of them now… The Joiner: This person has no interest in reaching the goal of 50,000 words or in even writing a novel. They are here to join … More NaNoPersonas – Which one are you?
In case you haven’t noticed, my blog posts this month have been all over the place. What’s that? You didn’t notice? Oh well… they have been. I’m not someone who is used to writing a blog post every single day and get my word count for NaNoWriMo and do everything else I have to do … More Go with the flow…
YES I CAN! Well, two days ago I was feeling very despondent. I lost so much momentum over the weekend and my word count was nowhere near where I wanted it. I thought writing on a long holiday weekend where I had plenty of time would be easy… right? Ya think? NOT! Basically I feel … More Back in the saddle again!
Yes, I’m late but I finally got the thing up. OK… It was an honest mistake, I promise. I’m not going to go on too much but I do want to talk about something I tweeted about recently. A friend of mine has discovered something about her #NaNoWriMo story and I congratulate her because it’s … More Yes I know it’s late. But it’s here and that’s what counts.
I got an e-mail today from NaNoWriMo about the second week being so hard on us WriMos. Apparently the first week is flush with success and in the second week, we tend to slow down and start struggling. A friend of mine is also participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time this year and we … More ME vs HER: The Week 2 Blues!
