I finished NaNoWriMo with over 15,ooo words. While I didn't win NaNaWriMo, I still feel good about the word count I ended up with!
I started my story again for NaNo. My story is better then before. I changed from 3rd person point of view to 1st. Good thing too, I didn't have a clue how to write my hero's point of view. I have a new beginning I feel good about.
A few things I learned my writing from my NaNoWriMo 2008 experince.
A outline is a good thing to have. I planned my chapters, some of those chapters are blank
Plan the next chapter, scene alittle before sitting down to write.
Drink lots of coffee. (It's a bad habit. Do not start this one unless you have too)
Now any new writers reading this keep in mind this is how I write. You need to learn what work for you, trust me I'm still learning what work for me! LOL!
This is the fastest I ever written 15,000 words.
For James Vance, and his family
