Sorry that we are still having trouble with the internet in my neighborhood, but here I am.
Just so you know… I quit this year’s NaNoWriMo about a week ago but I’ve been putting off mentioning it. I’m not giving up on the story or anything. In fact, I’m going to be writing it next month I think. I’ve been having some eye strain problems (can’t focus on words, bad headaches, etc) and my doctor literally said to stay away from screens and limit my reading time. LIMIT MY READING TIME. HOW AM I STILL ALIVE.
Anyway, I’ll still be on here every day to write about writing and check in with you all, but I’m not putting myself on a 50k word timer anymore. I’m just writing as much as I can without messing with my eyes and all of that.
Getting back to today’s post… We are halfway through NaNoWriMo! AHHH!
Time for more reflecting. My challenge for you is to look back over what you’ve got and still make sure you are going in the right direction. Maybe you want to add in a scene or two to what you’ve already written in order to pave a better path to where you want the story to go. Maybe you want to make a few notes on what you want to change and go back to it later (don’t stop the roll you are on now!). Find three good things that you’ve noticed and three bad things, then use that information to write better going forward.
Good luck! As always, thanks for reading and don’t stop writing:)
