So I finished NaNoWriMo on 27th November. Yay! Happy days.
I got an email from the NaNo team about what to do after the 30 days. I’m glad I got it because I was starting to think I would never go back and write again. They seemed to know that I needed a push.
So now to find the motivation to finish this novel.
A friend said ‘Don’t worry. You’re entitled to a break.’
But I know my form. Give me a break and it progresses rapidly from days to weeks and then the doubt sets in that I can start again. What is it? Oh yeah, that doubt that I can write properly or even build a story up.
So I gather myself today, now that I am admitting these things and book time in my diary for the next three days to begin again. Just three days, I say to myself, that’s not much. I can do that. Even, say, an hour a day. I can do that.
Actually, now that I’ve done that, I’m looking forward to it. I really like this story and there’s so much more that’s going to happen to those characters. Mwhaha…
