Have you heard of National Novel Writing Month? Or NaNoWriMo for short? It’s where during the month of November, you try to write 50,000, yes, that’s correct, 50,000 words in ONE MONTH. To keep you accountable, there is a website with writing buddies so you can see how you’re doing in relation to others. Nothing like a little competition to keep oneself motivated.
It took me a couple of days to quit trying to edit what I’d written but now, 8 days in, I find I’m writing more without that inner critic. Also, finding I like having plenty of words to come back and edit once I can type “The End.”
So whatever it is you do – silence your inner critic.
So stay tuned and I’ll follow-up mid-month and end of the month with my final word count.
