I have completed NaNoWriMo once, back in 2018. I lacked the courage to publish that novel at that time.
I have tried NaNoWriMo a couple of times since, but have not finished. I also failed Dean Wesley Smith’s novel channel this year. This is not promising for an S-List writer with aspirations to join “Team And More”.
So for this year’s NaNoWriMo I’m going back the basics with The Everyday Novelist. Everyday before starting my first writing session I’ll listen to the one of the original thirty episodes to get in the right mindset.
Today has two episodes “The Other NaNoWriMo” and “Before You Start”. The first concerns doing this to establish professional writing habits. That was my failure in 2018. I just stopped December 1. The second about skipping all the prep and going without a plan. Given that is how I tend to write I should be okay.
We will see what tomorrow brings.
