NaNoWriMo 2012 - Day 9



NaNoWriMo Day 9 - Yesterday was a doozy. Had trouble making it through, but I did. Oh yes, I did! The more pain I felt, the more I wanted to give up. The more the fibro fog wrapped itself around my brain, the worse my writing sounded resulting in a full on fight with my inner editor. No correcting, no deleting, no judging is allowed or I will never hit the word count goal of the day. NaNoWriMo is all about dumping. Getting words onto the page.
Today, something magical happened. I woke, I typed, I was reaching a point in the plot where I had to introduce an altering event and I wasn't sure how. Suddenly, the main character created the event all on her own! She guided me right through! Bravo Amelia! Thank you for showing me the way!

is the "no-no" key!

Love it when the story starts writing itself and you are but the vessel of the process. It's a great feeling and those parts of your work will be your favorites. What you have accomplished in nine days took me three months. Write on!

I'm at around 10000 words and my lead is starting to take her life in her hands. I love, love, love when that happens.

Congratulations on writing on! I have another 24 hours before I can sit down and really get back to it.

Just keep typing, typing, typing.
