I will be continuing with NaNo after all…

As I mentioned last night, I finished a draft in 16 days. Which is, if I say so myself, a marvelous achievement.

But… There are still 18k words left before I can win NaNoWriMo and when I woke up, I started thinking. What would it matter if I started on another story? 50k is 50k, right?

So yeah, I’m going to dust off a story I put on the shelf long ago.

Unlike before, though, I won’t be pushing as hard, because I can feel something lurking that I don’t like.

Fatigue. I’m feeling tired, even though I want to continue writing, so I’ll just go on at a somewhat relaxed pace and see how far I get. Especially since this story isn’t nearly as ripe in my mind as the one I finished had been. This might be much slower going, but hey, I’ll have more than I did before.

Do you also slow down when you feel fatigue coming on?

  1. I can only write efficiently for a certain amount of time each day, and then only when I'm at my sharpest, which is in the morning. Anything I write in the afternoon is like pulling teeth and usually has to be thrown out. I can't write under pressure and that's why I would never do NaNoWriMo. But I'm glad it works for some people. Keep up the good work, Misha!

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave a comment!
