NaNoWriMo Day 2 – The Tortoise’s Race

Posted on November 3, 2010


After a weekend in DC at the Rally to Restore Sanity, I’m trying to have reasonable expectations for this year’s NaNoWriMo. It’s day two, and I’ve written about 1000 words each day – 2129 words in total. It’s a little short of the 1,667 per day to be on target for 50,000, but prolificacy does not come easy for me. I struggle with being too concise, which is an asset in some types of writing, but not fiction – at least not yet.

My mantra is going to be … slow and steady. Slow and steady. That, and a strict ban on second-guessing and deleting all, and I think this will be a good month.
