National Novel Writing Month

Before the WordPress announcement about NaNoWriMo, I had no idea the event even existed!

Now that I have received news of it, however, I’m definitely interested in joining.

Whenever I write a story, I feel like I’m doing what NaNoWriMo says not to do – meticulously checking my work and being, in essence, also my greatest critic. Whenever I find myself stuck while writing a novel, it is usually due to this fact, and the mental exhaustion that comes with it. Soon writing develops into a tiresome chore rather than an enjoyable medium of creative expression.

As a result…

First off, I’m going to attempt applying the NaNoWriMo principals to the novel I’m currently working on – then when it’s done I’ll go back and make my revisions.

Second, I’ll write a second novel for NaNoWriMo and further rid myself of a frequently critical writing mindset.

If you’d like to read either novel, I should be posting excerpts sometime during or after NaNoWriMo.
