Attempting Nanowrimo

I’m attempting to do Nanowrimo this year.

The fact is that even though it’s hard, and can be heartbreaking and devastating, writing is where I feel home.

And I want to write. I want to write so badly. So I’m using this month as a reason to go balls out and write like the wind. Write like I’m running out of time.

Write write write write write.

I cheated today, though. Most of my words came from earlier drafts. But tomorrow, I’m going to go all out.

I keep meditating on the following things:

01. I’m shoveling sand to build castles later.
02. It’s OK to suck. Just write.
03. Be bold.
04. Be brave.
05. DON’T HOLD BACK.
06. Try not to edit… just let the words come.
07. Write without judgement.
08. JUST DO IT.
09. Don’t think about publication. Just think about the words.
10. Have fun.

And one that especially bears repeating:

1. Be brave.
2. Be brave.
3. Be brave.
4. Be brave.
5. Be brave.

I’m not sure if I will *win*. I have the ole day job, and two freelance contracts to deal with, plus health issues and my tendency to screw off playing games or watching Netflix. But I hope to have enough words down at the end of the month to have a fun project to revise. We all know, that’s where the real work is.

Wish me luck!

P.S. If you want to be my buddy on the site, I’m LilRonGal. :) Find me, and I’ll add you back.
