Welcome to the end of another week. For those of you participating in NaNoWriMo this year, it’s day #12 and–if you are on target–you now have about 20,000 words on the page.
This can be the part of NaNoWriMo when things get a bit more challenging. That initial burst of excitement has passed, the ideas you may have started with are now on the page, and your story may have taken a turn you weren’t expecting. Hopefully the momentum and consistent writing practice you’ve built these first weeks will carry you through to the end. Good luck to all, regardless of how many words you wind up with.
For those not participating in NaNoWriMo, or for those who are wondering “what’s for dinner?”, today (November 12th) is also “National Pizza with the Works (except anchovies) Day” and “National French Dip Day”–take your choice. I do have to wonder what anchovies did to get themselves specifically excluded from the pizza–perhaps they have their own day.
I don’t know if pizza and French dip are on the agenda for me today, but I do know getting words on the page is. Today’s writing prompt and random words will be a great way to kick things off.
