I think I just realized why Nanowrimo has been so difficult for me: this novel is much harder than my past ones, and for a couple of reasons.
I’m demanding a lot more from this novel. I’m using dual main characters, differing points of view, and writing outside of my comfort zone. So it’s no big surprise that I haven’t written as well, or as quickly, or as much as I usually do.
Acknowledging my challenges makes me feel better about where I am… but I am still further behind than I’d like to be.
What are your biggest challenges for Nanpwrimo this year? Are you doing anything differently than you usually do, and how’s that going for you?
Share your tips for getting through the mid-month slump and to the end of November. Happy writing, everyone!
