As usual, the first week of NaNoWriMo flew by to the sweet sounds of tap tap tap on the keyboard (or maybe the mad scratching of pencil on paper). All good sounds.
Let’s test the waters of progress. I’ve discovered the power of the Buddy System. Writing with friends and challenging each other have helped me soar to new heights during this first week. In the past, I typically go it alone. I’m a lone wolf by nature, which is fine. It works for me. I hunch over the keyboard in the glow of my words, coffee at the ready. I like that atmosphere. But I am constantly evolving and always game for new things. Writing buddies are great!
You know what else is great? Nano Badges. Have you earned the 10,000 badge yet? Maybe you’re an overachiever and have outbadged the rest of us.
Next week: How and where do you NaNoWriMo?
