Lets think positively shall we?

I have written over 7,000 words this weekend and finally broken the half way point. Finally I have written more than I have still to go.

Here are my reflections at the end of Day 19.

Sometimes things don’t go to plan. My NaNoWriMo story is one such example. It has evolved in so many ways that it is barely recognisable as my original outline. While this isn’t a problem, it means that I have a non-linear mass of words. Some of it still follows old plans that have since been overwritten with other ideas. I’m just going with it.

My goal is to write 50,000 words in November. Some of these words will end up in novel form, some of them will not. They will likely be joined by many other words that won’t get added in until much later.

The important thing is that I write. I am learning so much about myself and the creative process from this experience. I’m so glad I started it, and have gotten as far as I have. This is one challenge I have no intention of giving up on.
