And next week. My version of it, anyway, at a five pages/day goal instead of the crazy twenty pages/day goal (can anybody do that while working a full-time day job? Come tell me so I can be inspired by you).
Today is day two. If two days can be made into a pattern, I’m settling into a pattern of two pages before work and three pages after. Yesterday’s were rough going and I don’t feel they contributed much to the story but maybe that’s because yesterday was the first time in a month that I’ve worked on this project. Today’s pages have been coming better. More direct, less beating around the bush. That’s “the magic” of Fast Draft, though, and National Novel Writing Month – the more you write, the less you self-censor, the easier the story comes.
I haven’t participated in National Novel Writing Month officially in a couple of years. Last year, I used the month to write my Ellora’s Cave quickie, but the 15k words on that were a far cry from the 50k or more other November writers managed to produce. This year, I think I’ll participate in an official capacity again. I need a project, though. November’s less than a month away. 🙂
Who’s participating? Are you going official or using the month for some other purpose?
