We’re starting the second week of Camp NaNoWriMo. How’s your word count? Are you still scribbling away at it? This is usually the point at which you find plot holes. You might also start to get the feeling of “holy cow, there’s so many words to write.” Or maybe you started out really strong and got half your word goal in the first week and you feel like you can coast the second week and have plenty of time to finish.
Whatever point you’re at with your story, the goal is to keep writing. Write everyday. Even if you only write 100 words, write something every day. It doesn’t have to be related to your story as long as you’re flexing those writing muscles. This is really the goal of NaNo: to teach you that you can write everyday. The trick is to keep writing and to work on something that holds your interest. If you get bored, it’s easy to put down the pen or walk away from the keyboard. And we don’t want that, now do we?
