Update Day Eleven #NaNoWriMo entry #HerUnexpectedLife.
I broke the 20,000 mark! I have 20,608 on my #NaNoWriMo Novel #HerUnexpectedLife. I wrote 1,723 of those today.
I have written another 1,790 words on #OutoftheBlue ‘s addition today bringing the addition up to 7,697 words and the book up to 52,609.
Tip 3: Write.
Another thing that just sounds easy to do but I struggled with this for the past eight months with Out of the Blue. I would write a couple of chapters and then edit them. Write a few more and edit them. Around chapter fifteen I had read enough articles and interviews from seasoned authors to get it. If I haven’t written it I couldn’t edit it. I was procrastinating when I was doing this. Fear that I couldn’t finish a book. Fear that no one would read it. I was sabotaging myself. I’m still working on that book but I have published a few children’s books with my oldest daughter.
Tip 2: Turn off the TV.
Seems simple but I struggle with this one with some of the shows I like to watch starting back up.
Tip 1: Turn the wifi off on your laptop.
That box that pops up with Email, Facebook and Twitter updates is like pieces of candy dropped on the forest floor leading me to the witch’s house. (When I turn wifi back on my computer could be mistaken for a quarter machine in Vegas with all the dinging that’s going on.)
