NaNoWriMo Survival Journal Day 2 – 3,467/50,000
Today was fantastic, full of surprises. I already struggled to find the time to write today, and I knew it would be rough with working as hard as I am at work. So I told myself, “Self, you’re doing this. What you’re going to do is sit down, and you are simply NOT going to stop typing until you have at least 1,667 words.” So I didn’t . I started typing and I let my words flow without ceasing until I was done.
I don’t know if all the words were good, but it doesn’t matter if they AREN’T. Know why? A good friend of mine says you can always go back and make them better, but you can’t improve on what’s not there.
That’s my mantra for today, as I’m two days into NaNo. Write crap, spew words, forget the Delete & Backspace keys exist for the next 29 days. Trust me, you’ll use them plenty later, but for now, its just about getting your idea out there.
Bring it, Day 3.
