Nine more days left of NaNoWriMo.

After about 35,000 words of writing I am still moving forward. With some busy days mixed in I have slowed down a bit, but am hoping to get back on track again and plow ahead. My goal today is to write as often as I can, whenever I have a moment I will sit and write. One thing I have learned during NaNoWriMo is that word sprints are fun and super helpful to get my words down without over thinking. 

A word sprint is when you (and hopefully others) write for ten or fifteen minutes (or for however long you wish) as much and as fast as you can without overthinking. Then, when time is up you tell each other how many words you have all written. This is not a competition; it’s a challenge to yourself. Try to beat your word count. Not others. Everyone writes at their own speed. 
If you haven’t tried sprinting I highly encourage you to try. It’s not for everyone, but it definitely worked for me. Good luck and happy writing.

Now, I must be off to sprint, sprint, sprint!

Until next time, keep creating.
