I suppose I am a fairly peppy person, but pure prostration makes me puzzle over how much pep I can pull…let’s ponder…(you knew I would go there, C’mon…it’s me.)
So we are now in the second week of NaNoWriMo, and for all of you wrimo-ing about chances are you’re at one of three stages:
Stage A: You’re one of those robots who writes 30,000 words per day and you are finished.
Stage B: You haven’t even started.
Stage C: You are on task or at least somewhere in the “on task” reachability plane. I venture to guess many of you are Stage C-ers. If you are a member of group “A” keep it to yourself I don’t even want to know about it. Aside from time I think one of the biggest challenges of NaNo is allowing yourself to just write- no edits, no changes, just wild uninhibited writing. Someone somewhere along the line suggested covering the computer screen while typing. If you don’t see the errors you won’t stop top fix them. This is key for writing a first draft anyway as many of the items you fix in the beginning may not even be there in the end, equaling wasted time. No one wants that! So go grab a pillow case, a towel or your cat (he wants to sleep on the screen anyway) and cover that thing up! Here’s betting you get more written…:0)
