For those NaNoWriMo-ing it up:
Just write. It’s only day two. Keep writing and next week we’ll talk about what to do when you get stuck in your novel.
For those who aren’t:
Today is a free writing day. Take about ten minutes and brain dump. Any random thought that comes to your head, write it down.
Then put it away until tomorrow.
Tomorrow I want you to read what you wrote. Is there a funny line a character you’re working with might say? Is there a situation that happened to you that you wrote about that a character would react to in a different way?
Most likely your free write will, in some way, have something to do with a character you are working on and this free write will help free up your mind.
