It’s now the mid-mark of NaNoWriMo, and I’m at 23,420 words. So, I’m a tad behind.
The way I see it, this NaNoWriMo is like a writer’s boot camp. It breaks you down, weakens you, makes you vulnerable, and makes feel quite humble, as in “I’m the worst writer in the world.” And, then you wonder why you should write anything, but because you already feel like you’re the worst writer in the world, you allow yourself to write the worst possible crap ever. Whew! I feel better. Hopefully, I’ll come out of this stronger, faster, and tougher. I’ll really know what I made of. That’s it.
My characters remain aloof. Perhaps, they’re spending too much time in the house, and I need to get them outside, or let them be really bad. On the bright side, I do like some of my ideas.
And, now, a little video for your viewing pleasure, so this post is, uh, not a complete waste of your time. Gee, honey, I thought it was because of my soft skin.
It’s based on science, and what more do you want out of life? Really. Science has the answers for everything. Enjoy.
