NaNoWriMo Cometh.

So there are now less than three weeks until National Novel Writing Month and I’m a ball of mixed feelings. I don’t think I’ll have any issues with hitting the 50k and due to the way my brain is structured I can’t help but panic that some of the content might not be all that because I’ve learnt through the recent redrafts of my short stories that I do have a tendency to get carried away, to bleed sentences together, to avoid the humble full stop. I’ve got seventy percent of it planned, I might just see what happens to the rest of it. It’s going to be a challenge, but I seem to love taking on a challenge recently.

In other news it has been recommended that I find somewhere quiet to burrow away and work. I need to have an assessment this weekend because I think I’ve found the perfect spot, just need to get permission and do a bit of work getting it all shipshape.

Back to the rain.

  1. I wouldn’t worry about your first drafts. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt about writing, it’s that an incredible amount of crap can be fixed later. Lately I’ve taken to writing my first drafts without the slightest care given to quality. It’s very freeing. Good luck with NaNo.
