Writing

The Good, Bad, And Ugly Of NaNoWriMo

Good:

  • NaNoWriMo serves as great motivation. Have you always said you wanted to write a book? Now is your chance to actually write one.

Bad:

  • Writing anything is time consuming. 50,000 words in a month means about 1,667 words a day, which translates to one, two, maybe three hours of work in a 24 hour span of time.

Ugly:

  • Possibly the most mentally, physically, and emotionally taxing project you will tackle in your life. Your brain starts to hurt, your hands begin to cramp up, and your mood is unstable at your best or volatile at your worst. (I can attest to all three.)
