Let the Words Flow

This year I’m planning to do things a bit differently than I have in the past for NaNoWriMo. Instead of spending so much time carefully planning each chapter and obsessing over everything I write, I’m going to be a little more experimental (kind of like I’m trying to do with this blog on a general level), and let the words just flow, because it can always be edited later. If I don’t do this, I may never finish a novel!

I say this because today I was feeling down about those days in years past where I would sit in front of the computer for an hour or so and eke out only a few words. One sad November day I only had two words (kind of like yesterday), true story! I don’t want days like that this year, instead I want to just free myself to write without being so self-conscious.

Today I earned my first NaNo 2017 badge and officially “started” my novel by putting some basic 2017 information into the NaNo site.
