Hoping everyone's NaNoWriMo efforts have got off to a good start. I've had one day where I managed to write more than the daily target, while yesterday I wasn't really in the mood and that was my lowest word count so far (around 400). I made it out for a walk today and spent a good part of it typing into my phone as ideas kept on forming, so my total now stands at 6400 - still more than a day off-target though. I'll have to get some more walks in!

Day 20 already - the month has gone by quick! I'm at 29,000 words, so now about 2.5 days adrift, but really pleased with what I've done. It's either going to be a psycho-drama or a sci-fi horror, or maybe I'm writing two books in one and will need to separate them at some point.

Switching character viewpoints has been a big help with the writing process. If I get stuck on what the main characters should be doing next, I switch to one of the supporting ones and they usually end up doing something interesting to keep the plot moving.

Got something to say?

BEGINS 1st of NOVEMBER, ENDS 30th of NOVEMBER!

Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.<br>

Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It's all about quantity, not quality. The kamikaze approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.<br>

Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap. And that's a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down....
