It just shows that you become a better writer with practice. And I've had my share of writing practice in the last five days.
I wrote a lot today, 5,000 words. It's a lot of words. And tomorrow, 5,000 words is my same goal. You know why? Because with those next 5,000 words, I will hit 25,000 words, making me half done with NaNoWriMo. In less than a week.
NaNoWriMo has already made me a better writer, and it is also making me a faster writer. My sanity is still in tact and I love writing even more now.
Here is today's advice:
- Set a goal and stick with it. Today after I had written about 2,000 words, I was ready to stop. But I had told myself earlier in the day that I would write 5,000 words today. And I did it, which I am so happy about.
- Don't worry about the NaNoWriMo site. It goes up and down all the time, so instead of reloading the page, just write and update your word count later.
- Stay away from twitter. I probably could have doubled today's word count if I hadn't been checking my @ replies every five minutes.
