Sending positive thoughts to all my writer friends out there who are participating in NaNoWriMo this year!
I haven’t done this challenge before, so I’m really not sure what to expect. The good news is, yesterday was a success from a word count perspective (1,802!), but I woke up in the middle of the night with the urge to delete everything I wrote. I know that we’re all supposed to tell our internal editors to take a hike this month, but it’s hard!
Anyone else battling their internal editor?
God yes. But! My husband gave me the ‘No Plot No Problem’ kit (“”) for my birthday last year so I’ve got some good encouragement in my corner. I especially liked today’s, so I’ll share for anyone having trouble letting go of that editor:
“What you started producing yesterday is noveling clay – valuable, essential, and invariably lumpy. Its beauty will grow as you work it.”
So, onwards and upwards I guess.
