Halfway through NaNoWriMo

Fellow writers! We are half way through National Novel Writing Month—are you still on track?

This year, I pledged to write 100 words a day, and even though it’s been tough sometimes, I’ve managed to stay on track. I’m not saying they’re GREAT words. Right now, the whole story is filled with grammar and spelling errors, and I don’t even know if it makes complete sense.

But you know what?

It doesn’t matter! Because first drafts are meant to be rough. You can—and will—go back and edit, after you’ve spilled those rough words onto the page.

Having trouble keeping up? Here are some tips for writing FAST:

1. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
2. Give yourself permission to write a horrible first draft.
3. Don’t think—just write.

Gotta jet! Happy writing!
