Day 6 of NaNoWriMo… avoiding burn out
It’s been a crazy week and it’s only day 6 of NaNoWriMo. This NaNo is different than the previous one’s.
Perhaps it is because this time around I’ve done things differently. From how I planned out my novel (using the hero’s journey and tarot/Arwen Lynch’s eCourse), to re-doing a novel I started a previous NaNo, to having my own website, to having been on YT creating videos for a little over a year now… Yes, it’s different. But it’s not just those things–it’s me.
I’ve changed. My writing process has changed, my writing space/room has changed, I have a new laptop (though still the same old desktop).
Those changes have helped me become a better writer because I’m slowly but surely figuring out my writing process. Perfecting it, if you will. Not that it will ever be perfect, but I can get my writing process to a point where it works for me 99% of the time. At least that’s what I’m aiming for.
