Dramaquill's All Things Writing

November 19, 2007

At nearly 26,000 words, I think I finally have a story

So Nanowrimo is consuming all my free time this month, but that’s okay because I’ve never written so much in such a short time. 

For a time, I was concerned that my chosen book to do in this month long challenge was nothing more than wordage…a bunch of letters on paper and nothing salvagable. 

But I’ve hung in there and the story is really starting to take shape at last.  My characters are helping me weave my way through the plot and although the book’s not exactly what I pictured it to be, it is finally taking shape and resembling a book.

So now I’m inspired to keep going and to find out where it’s all leading. 

And best of all, I’ve stopped editing it.  It’s supposed to be a first draft and I’m at peace with that now. 

So if you’re struggling through your Nano project and wondering “What’s the point?”, don’t despair.  Just keep going. Keep putting words to page.  Keep following ideas, even if they lead you in different directions. 

But most of all…keep going.
