Half Past #NaNo Pep Talk 2017 #amwriting

I’m not doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year, but I have friends who are, and I have friends who would like to, so I’m doing my annual half-past-NaNo pep talk.

Half Past NaNo Pep Talk 2017

by Marian Allen

You cannot “lose” at NaNo
however few your words.
The “word count” is a goal, you know,
and “winning”‘s for the birds.
The point is not to “make it”;
the point is just to think —
to think about your writing goals
or just step off the brink.
With NaNo, you just concentrate
and concretize your goals.
It’s possible you’ll write a lot
of plot, including holes;
but maybe you’ll just realize
that you don’t write this way.
It may be you’re a slowby
not a sprinter. That’s okay!
Relax! Enjoy! Just savor
the pleasure of immersion
in writing — your own flavor —
your NaNo — your own version.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Someone feels like a failure but is a winner.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
