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.
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.
