I broke 25k for Nano!!!
Really, that’s all. Lol. And I’m just feeling pretty pumped about it.
How’s everyone else doing?
And while I’m here, week 2 is the slump week. Though I’ve never won Nano before, I have had to keep writing even when I wanted to do anything but. Here are a few things that work for me when those crash and burn moments hit.
-Take a break
People never think of this one. Stand up. Walk around. Dance if you have to. Moving helps the creative juices flow.
-Work on a different part of the story
Nano’s challenge is write 50k, not write 50k in a consecutive manner. If chapter 12 is calling to you, write chapter 12. Anything to keep writing.
-Surround yourself with other writers/people doing Nano
Whether this be local writers or some form of an online writing community, having other people there to encourage you helps. And don’t forget to encourage back.

Here’s to the next 25k!
