NaNoWriMo Diary, Day 6Posted: November 6, 2016
Just finished up for the weekend, just 26 words shy of 15,000. I gotta say, three days ago I was feeling pretty hopeless. I decided I would just write and not worry too much about word count.
So I didn’t. I just wrote.
Writing fiction for me is not usually fun. It is work. 1,000 words can take me two hours or more, trying to craft phrases, create complex characters.
Starting yesterday I decided just to write and not worry too much about whether I was going to have to go back and rewrite.
An amazing thing happened: I wrote several thousand words and it was fun. I enjoyed it.
I don’t think the writing is particularly good. I think it’s good enough to be ready for an edit with some rewrites once the 50,000 word draft is done.
That’s probably going to be December/January.
