It's that time again NaNo-ers.
Writing a novel in a month is no easy feat/feet. A-huh, you will get brain farts, word vomit, eye wedgies, rapid finger jabbing, and the worst of it all...the i-suck-why-waste-my-time syndrome.
But let's talk about insecurity.
Okay, let's talk about overcoming insecurity. That's why we're all here. To know that we are not alone in this madness of the "why" challenge that can kill creativity and stunt hope.
I participated in my first NaNo last year and I really enjoyed it. Again, this year I am meeting my goals, moving forward with the plot, having some weird dreams that have nothing to do with what I'm writing but I'm incorporating in it anyway.
Dragons in a contemporary thriller--yeah. I can add that. Why not?
It's NaNo...Anything goes.
Whether you are NaNo-ers or not, take comfort in knowing you are not alone. There is an end to the madness--whether in 30 days or a year. But the story needs to be written, needs to take life, and you are the only one that can do it. Because you have Dragons.
Yeah...I'm going back to my hidey hole now.
