November 4th

I have now reached 7315 words for NaNoWriMo.

This post continues the blog challenge for the month.

We have had two – not one but two – offers for the house. We took the highest offer, and must wait a week, and pass a home inspection by November 14th.

All the hard work of sorting, packing, cleaning and donating has paid off I believe.

The same will be true of NaNoWriMo. It takes dedication and determination to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It also requires some imagination and I think that sometimes this is where we, as writers, can fall flat. It is very easy to burn out during November. At first, the Muse may be cascading ideas upon you, and then, there is nothing. Nothing to write.

Then it’s time to ask – What is the worst that might happen to my character now?  What does my main character fear most? Love the best? What does he/she need to learn? Where is he/she going to be at the end of the story?

Where are the highs and lows? Do I need another crisis – another thread in this story?

So far, I am writing without having to stop and  concentrate on these things, but I am sure that the time will arrive.
