So, this is my first year doing NaNoWriMo and I'm doing okay. I've got over 15,000 words and while I don't know if I'll make the 50,000 word goal, I'm happy with what I've learned from NaNo so far.
I've learned that I can turn my inner editor off and just write. I haven't gone back to edit anything since I started this NaNo novel.
I've learned that writing sprints are very motivating for me and even when I have no idea what I'm going to write, my muse shows up and my fingers fly. We're doing another one tonight at 8 p.m. if anyone wants to join us.
I've also learned that no one talks to me. For some reason I had the idea that there was a NaNo community and people would buddy me and talk to me. But sadly, I've not had anyone talk to me. It's a little lonely. Maybe I just imagined that this would be more of a cheerleading type joint effort to get that 50,000 words. Maybe my expectations were too high. But, no matter, since I have my bloggy friends to talk about it with, right?
How did your word count go this week?
