footer-nanowrimoI am still behind on my wordcount (if I were writing 1,667 per day I would have 35K today) but that’s not so far behind that I can’t make 50K by November 30. I still have hope!

Recent reminders that have come up thanks to the NaNo process:

  • Go with the flow: today a character that I hadn’t expected would say much got his own chapter. Way to go, Billy! (He’s 5 years old.)
  • Find those in your shoes: I’ve been keeping up with two other friends who are doing NaNo. Hearing about their progress inspires me to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
  • Shower less: that time can be used to write.
  • Read the NaNo Pep Talks: these words from Lev Grossman hit home yesterday —

A writer—someone once said—is a person for whom writing is difficult. That resistance you’re feeling is proof that you’re digging deep. To write a novel is to lose your way and find it over, and over, and over again.

That’s it for now. I’m busy losing and finding my way to 50K.
