It’s the first day of NaNoWriMo. As usual, I’m writing all of these in advance so I don’t have to worry about them while I overload myself with other writing.
I’m also writing these assuming that I’ve decided to do NaNoWriMo and that I’m going to end up aiming for just the standard 50,000 and my personal goals because of work.
It’s the first day of NaNo. The fingers have been itchy for weeks and now they’re unleashed.
Unless you’re like me and have been writing on your NaNo project for a while. In which case the start of NaNo probably feels a little less momentous.
The hype is in full swing at this point of the month, though, and that’s going to make it a little easier. It’s easy to start when you’re excited about starting after all.
And that’s what I think is the main trick of NaNo. Find out how to be excited. Find out how to stay excited. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, and you’re going to need to find ways to keep yourself going through the whole process.
Today your task is to get yourself off to the most exciting start possible.
Good luck. Do what you gotta. Make yourself laugh at least once today. Tomorrow will be easier for it.
