Hiddey Ho there Scribblers! J Monkeys here. So I know there are both fans and pans of Nanowrimo out there. If you aren’t familiar with Nano, click here for more detail. Where do you fall? I’m a fan. I’ve learned a very important lesson over the last year. I hate writing first drafts. It’s my least favorite part of the writing process. It turns out, I’ll do just about anything to avoid it. And hey, guess what? You aren’t a writer if you can’t write a first draft. You know that beautifully sculpted final product? It starts with the first draft.
Nanowrimo is a tool that helps me staple my butt to the chair and get that torturous first draft written. In fact, I could use two or three Nanowrimo’s a year.
So, since it’s November, I’m keeping the blog posts short and sweet. If you are a writer, get writing. If you are a Wrimo – quit goofing off and get back at that word count!
