But I still love NaNoWriMo. Why? Because I did it! Because I did make up a story even when it was hard to do; because more than anything, I noticed that a little work goes a long way. Today, even though I didn't have a word count to fulfill, I sat down at my computer for several hours and edited two picture book stories, reworked my website (slightly) and wrote this blog. And it didn't feel like work.
The hardest thing to overcome when being a writer are distractions. During NaNoWriMo, I learned to ignore distractions. I think I can carry that over and start working consistently on my writing. (Key word is consistent). I have 5 more short scripts to prep before I ebook them. Now that I know I can put my "butt in the chair and just write," I will get those scripts done by the end of December, without breaking a sweat.
