Week 2 of National Novel Writing Month—and it already feels like an entire month! This week, I’ve written thousands of words, discovered a writing strategy to keep me on track and am surprised by how well this story is shaping (even though several rounds of edits are in my future).
So, what have I been up to this week when it comes to My NaNoWriMo?
Sometimes, creativity is a choice. You miraculously have the afternoon free to take on your creative project, be it writing, painting, crafts or whatever else lets you be expressive.
Sometimes, creativity is not a choice. You have more days than not in your career where a creative solution from you is needed either minutes before the end of the day or at a high-peak, high-stress moment.
Here’s how Camp NaNoWriMo goes for me: I pick out a writing project that I’m psyched to write, yet I find myself with the mantra “I’ll start it tomorrow” because of work and family commitments and errands until I find myself with the month over and no words written.
