Why I hate NaNoWriMoPosted: November 2, 2016
I am struggling today. My goal is to get another 2,200 words or so done and hit 5,000.
But that’s the problem. I have written 30,000 words in a week in non-fiction, and I’m confident I could put down 2,200 words of fiction tonight.
But it will suck. I am struggling between writing quickly and writing well. I want to write something people will enjoy, that will stir them emotionally. I don’t simply want to write something “longer than I have written before.”
Well, back at it. If you have any sage advice, feel free to share.
Edit: I think I am going to do something I decided not to do before I started. I am going to create a better outline. I put down some things I want to have happen, some scenes I want to create, but not a section by section story arc and sub-story arcs. I think that might help. How can I manipulate my readers emotions without them?
