NaNoWriMo: Day 4 ~ The ABCs of Writing
How are you doing on your word count? Yesterday, I hit my word count, and then some extra, which means I'm kicking off today right on track. I'm trying not to get too excited—I generally fall apart in the second half of the month.
That's right, this isn't my first time doing NaNoWriMo. In fact, I started it in 2015, where I got in about 3,000 words before the holiday season swept me up in all things "Christmas." This year, I'm resisting the pull of the twinkling lights and committing myself to finishing—and finishing strong.
Although I didn't finish that "talking animal" story in 2015, something great did come out of that year—26 blog posts about writing. I covered tips on craft, story starters, terms you should be familiar with and much more! You can see those posts starting here.
If you're stuck, looking for inspiration, or just need a break, just scroll through my A to Z of Writing to get you back on track.
Gotta jet! Today, I'm hoping to write a few extra words so I stay ahead of the game. Good luck with YOUR work in progress—may the words be with you!
