NaNo Tip Time
Here is my biggest tip to you NaNites out there who may be bogged down, who have hit that slow point, who don’t know how to move on and feel like all is lost:
Simple solutions tend to be the best, right? I had hit a point in my story where it just got horribly slow. My pantsing approach to writing is thrilling and fun, but sometimes I can write myself into a corner. That had happened. I had hit a spot where I was spinning my wheels, and was spending too much time and energy trying to finish it before I could move on.
JUST MOVE ON.
I finally stopped my insanity. I made a few notes of where I would like to see this section lead someday in the editing future. Then I skipped ahead to the nearest section I could think of and started writing again. It works! At some point toward the end of the month, if I need more words to win, I can go back to that noted section and plug away. And if not, the editing phase will save the day.
So if you are falling behind… Move on.
I will see you on the other side of 50k!
