>Nano, week 2


I’m up at 4:30 today, and I’m at 22k so far on nano. Good progress. Motivation holding strong. Words flowing pretty easily thanks to my 30-point story outline. Thirty points for 30 days. Makes sense, right? Of course, the outline was 10,000 words I couldn’t use, but oh well. LOL. Absolutely not allowing myself stray from the outline has helped immensely.
Got this email this morning–I get them every morning. A buddy of mine sends them.
“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.” —Galatians 6:9

Perfect timing for that message.

Also got an email from Chris Baty, Nano creator.

This was obviously inspired by NaNoWriMo’s two famous wormholes, which fling writers forward (in a good way) when they hit 25,000 and 35,000 words. At these magical tipping points, normal rules of NaNoWriMo physics no longer apply. Forward writerly motion becomes easier, fitful stories take off, and word-counts begin accelerating towards warp speeds.”

Sort of the same message, huh? And I’m reminded of Niecy on Clean House. “Let’s get to gettin’.”

So I’m off to write. Have a good day everybody!
