If you’re anything like me, you’ve been preparing for NaNo all month and, without really meaning to, stopped writing. This is bad because we’re falling out of the practice of writing, so writing for two hours a day come November is going to be that much harder. Sure, during normal novel prep it is pretty usual to only write snippets or notes, but during NaNo prep we’ve got to keep ourselves in the habit of writing.
Easier said than done, I know. We’ve all got such hectic schedules, so many distractions, and so much to think about. Heck, I almost forgot to write this post today. And when I remembered, I thought about skipping it altogether. But that would’ve have been a disservices to you and to me.
So here is my encouragement: write a little bit every day. I don’t care what. A blog post, a novel scene, a poem. Whatever you want. Just be sure that you keep writing.
