Nanowrimo 2017 update 

So, doing Nanowrimo this year. I’ll be updating here periodically.

Right now, because progress is almost never linear, I stand at 1,000 words.

I’m short of the word count so far, but I’m prone to writing for 5-8k word sessions, when I have time, so not so much worried right now. 

A thing about the “non-linear” statement :

I wrote 600 words on the first day of Nano, but reading it, I realized I didn’t like the voice, or the POV. So, I changed the POV amd spent a little more time finding the voice. Knew when I found it, because it was off to the races.

I wrote 1,000 words of original narative in an hour this morning. 

Some days writing is a slog.

Sometimes, it’s a lightening bolt.

If you’re writing – whether participating in Nanowrimo or not – take heart. 

Take heart and keep writing.

You’ll slog and you’ll flash. And when you’re done, you’ll barely remember which scenes were written how.

Good luck.
