Long time no see (or is it read?).
Hopefully you’re not like me; breaking promises to yourself about writing more because you’re:
A.) Reading five books at once, but still not working on your own.
B.) Working more hours since you’re not in school.
C.) Promising yourself for the thousandth time that tomorrow you’ll write.
D.) Catching up on television series.
E.) None of the above.
F.) Other: _____________ (please place your excuse in the space provided)
Well, the answer to your muses’ prayers have been answered. There are two more weeks until the next writer’s challenge from Nanowrimo begins. This is their summer event, titled Camp Nanowrimo. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in the month of July. Unlike the November event, you won’t get anything for reaching said goal other than the satisfaction of doing it.
Finishing a rough draft that long that fast is really a reward within itself (and you can always take part in November’s Nanowrimo as well). After that, perhaps the fact that nearly every movie in the past two or three years has been from a comic book, novel, or revamp should spur you on to refine your story and turn it into the diamond you already know it is.
You owe it to yourself and your characters to complete their stories and make it the best that you can, but no one can sit you down with a pen/pencil/tablet/laptop/other device for writing. It has to be you, wordsmith.
Best of luck and as always, happy writing!
