Michelle Wittle On Week One of NaNoWriMo


I wanted to take this blog today and check in with all the NaNoWriMo-ers out there.
So far, I have about 15,000 words and I won’t lie, I’ve had some small rewrites.
As the novel continues to reveal itself to me, I’ve noticed some characters are wanting to be a bigger part of the novel than I first thought. That means I had to go in and add more scenes earlier in the book.
Also, I was having a big problem starting Chapter 7. I started and restarted it about four times before I could hit into the correct way to write the chapter.
Writing a novel is not easy and we need to support one another. So, let me know how you are doing and where you are in your novel.

Writing Prompt Wednesday


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.
