This last year was my second attempt at NaNoWriMo, and it ended up starting me on a new book that I am pretty excited about, but I’ve never written scifi before. I have to remind myself, just as writers always hear, just keep writing. Don’t think about whether or not it sounds like crap – that is what editing is for. Don’t wait for inspiration, just spill words onto the page and see where it takes you. Once you get in the zone, the book will write itself and you’ll have a great foundation to start editing and rewriting after you finish the initial manuscript. Wish me luck!
So, I’m unsure how many people actually read this, but I figured I would update.
Finals week is in two weeks from now. I only have one test this semester, but the lack of time is starting to stress me out as far as my grades go. It’s hard to recover from a month of depression, after a month of the flu. Hopefully all will go well.
I started NaNoWriMo, and got further than I did last year, ending with 5,551 words. I’ll win one of these years.
My NaNo novel is one that I am really excited about, it’s my first sci-fi. It’s going to be difficult for me, and I’m hoping that I will be able to push through and actually finish a manuscript this time. I’m going to need a lot of support.
If you are reading this, you are awesome. I thank you
