NaNoWriMo 2006 Report: Week 2

Thursday, November 16, 2006
Clichés mostly come to mind this week: "Slow, but steady" and, the Fremen favorite, "The slow way is the sure way."

My muse has spent most of the week speaking to me in sound bites—rationing out the story one single scene at a time. I've been making progess, but incredibly, painfully slowly. I am way behind where I need to be, word-count-wise, but at least am writing consistently. So, it's not all bad. Any number of words greater than zero is a good thing!

I'm beginning to think that my muse is also using NaNoWriMo as an excuse to get me to exercise more. She tends to speak to me more when I'm out taking a walk. Coincidence? I wonder . . .

Well, back to it . . .

  1. Quit blaming it on the muse, and get back to work. The whole point is to quit pacing and measuring and quantifying and qualifying and just *get out of the way* of your story. Which will, given enough benign neglect, tell itself. =)
