  1. I’ll have to read these more closely when NaNo is done. I’m killing the word count so far, and my greatest enemy is stopping to edit every few paragraphs. That’s one of the reasons I’m doing NaNo, to get myself away from editing as I write, as I’ve found this hampers me a little bit. But everyone is different! I hope it’s going well for you!


    1. Mm I forgot to mention that people can bookmark the page and come back to it later. That’s awesome. Why is editing so tempting? 😉 I’m glad to hear your novel is going well. So long as I manage to write everyday, I consider that a success.


      1. Yes, exactly. I’d been in such a slump for a month or so, it’s been refreshing to just get words on ‘paper.’ Although, right now, most of it seems to consist of soliloquies and description and character development. Meh. Plot can come later, right? 🙂
