NaNoWriMo Starts Tomorrow

Posted by Shannon Haddock on October 31, 2015 in Uncategorized |

And I’m a little sad not to be doing it.  I know I wrote a whole blogpost about why I’m not doing it, but still, I miss it.  I miss the competitiveness of it all mostly, I think.  The competition with myself mostly, the trying to beat my last five minute word war word count and shit like that.

And that’s the problem, ultimately. Writing shouldn’t be a race to see how many words you can get written in x amount of time.  It takes nothing besides being able to type fast to do that.  Writing always should be about what the words are, not how many there are.

Yes, I have a weekly word count goal.  But that’s trying to establish a habit.  It’s the difference in running a race and running every morning for the health benefits.  (Not really  an exaggeration, by the way.  My mental health is better when I’m writing regularly.)

And I forget what else I was going to say.  Damn.  So, happy Halloween!
