I’ve compromised my writing morals. I feel so dirty, accepting every single word that wishes to grace the page, going for quantity rather than quality, turning a blind eye to passive voice, overused weak words – sure no problem, the more the merrier. It feels so so wrong, but it has to be done. I can take the stink out of the manuscript later, but I can’t take the stink out of a blank page.
NaNoWriMo and the quest to write 50,000 words in 30 days is almost half way through. I’ve been getting up at crazy hours in the morning, staying up well past a decent bedtime and I’ve reached just over 12,000 words. At this rate I’ll finish by December 7, which means it’s time to wrap up this post, put on some mood music, and hit the writing.
I’ve got goals to conquer.
Are you participating in NaNo, and if so how’s it going? Are you planning on giving it a try next year? Or are you staying away from the insanity of it all?
