Momentum: Put one word after another and then keep going…

Before you write it’s good to analyze your momentum factor or your perseverance factor. More often than not a weakness in momentum or a lack of perseverance will undermine the production of a book rather than anything to do with talent. So often I’ve had a good article going or a good start to a book and then become distracted with a new idea.

I think that one of the best outcomes of participating in NaNoWriMo is that you must move forward in your writing in order to slap down the over 1,600 words per day needed to make 50,000 required in a month. I felt such a jolt this year. It was as if I finally realized the purpose of NaNoWriMo for me: It’s to get me back on track, to rev my engines, to get the words flowing and keep then flowing.

Now, 1,000 words a day doesn’t seem like so much. So I’m off to pull out My Tenth Life and to move forward with it.

Momentum: keep moving forward.
