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.

About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
