In Which I Contradict Myself

So I guess blogger is acting strange since it seems to have reverted back to what it used to be when you make a new post. Maybe it's just me.

Anyway, today I decided I didn't want to write. I have had this feeling the past few days, but I pushed myself to do it and had fun just like I did the first day of NaNo. But then I realized I had written so much so quickly that I was going to burn myself out.

So I'm taking a break. It's not a crazy week-long, going to ruin NaNo break. It's just one day. And I've decided to let myself have one day off every week. That should be just fine, especially with the rate I am writing at.

So here is today's advice, which goes against everything I have just said...
  1. Write every day, even when you don't feel like doing it. For the past few days, I didn't really want to write, but when I made myself do it, I had a blast and got a lot done. So just do it.
See you tomorrow,

  1. That actually is the best advice for writing a book. Sit in a chair, type out words, even when you don't want to. And then, like magic, it starts to flow and get fun. And when you're done, you have a shiny new novel.

  2. I agree! I write myself out of the mood to not write all the time. :)
