The webinar lasted for almost two hours, and after hardly any sleep the previous night I can’t say I was very awake… That being said, I really did get some helpful tips. I have seen character building as something I’ve not been too bad at, but I still think I got some helpful pointers to get even better at it.
I had hoped to do NaNoWriMo again this year, I had a wonderful time last year. If I have the time and energy, I’m not sure about. We’ll see what I end up doing, but I really should get back at working on that novel…
So, what’s different this year, you might ask. Well, I have been mad enough to take four weeks off work. Unpaid. Simply to write. So, that’s what I’m doing. Come 30 November, I will have a novel of 50 000 words. I’m well on my way, but there’s still a lot to do.
I am currently trying to write 2 000 – 3 000 words every day. This leaves space for bad days. Like last Wednesday, when the day was filled with bad news, a migrain attack, and some other blahness. I managed only 500 or so words. Fortunately, I had had a couple of other days with about 3 000 words, so it was okay. There will be good days, and there will be bad days. It’s just as well to write more on good days.
