Off and Running #NaNoWriMo

Mae Clair is off and running today with a post on Story Empire filled with tips for those of you who are taking part in NaNoWriMo this month. And some of her advice works for those of us who aren’t, too. Stop by to check it out and wish Mae well on her venture. And be sure to pass the post along so other might find it helpful, as well, thanks! Good luck, Mae! You’ve GOT this! 😀 ❤

Happy Monday, SEers!  It’s day two of the November write-a-thon known as NaNoWriMo.

water splashIf you’re participating, no doubt you geared up for yesterday and made a huge splash with your word count. Go you!

At the same time, pace yourself. The danger with any race, especially a long-distance event, is burning out too soon. As someone who has done NaNo several times, I put the bulk of my energy up front. I’m one of those writers who burst from the gate with a bullet of speed. My first day word count in 2019 was 9,037. Pretty impressive, huh? (I’m writing this post ahead of time,  prior to November 1, 2020 when, hopefully, I knock it out of the ballpark again).

But like the hare and the tortoise, slow and steady wins the race. It doesn’t matter how splashy your entrance, only that you cross the finish line.

    • Nope. NaNo is not for me, though I very much enjoy knowing what others are accomplishing, and I’m wishing Mae HUGE success with it! I’m struggling to keep afloat already, so I’ll just keep plugging away on my new WIP when I can, keeping up at least a bare minimum on my blogging, and working like a thing possessed in our house and yard, hoping to have it at least tidied up enough to be presentable for Thanksgiving company, if my daughter and family can safely make the trip. That’s about all I can handle. But I do hope you enjoyed Mae’s post. She touched on a lot of good stuff! 🙂
