Write all the time – not just in November!


I’m going to be a naysayer on NaNoWrimo.

It’s not for me. I don’t want to try and cram a novel out in a month. Sure, you can edit it afterwards, but then you could also write it at your own pace. It’s not an exam. It’s fiction. Your imagination is supposed to flow, not rush to the finish.

In the end, this is just my opinion. To the people who are participating, I say good luck. I hope you manage to write something worth publishing.

But just imagine if you wrote something every day. How many short stories could you write in a month, for example? Feasibly you could write one a week – or two, if you really put your mind to it. You could spend a month polishing them to perfection and then submit them for possible publication.

Don’t spend a month writing a novel just to be part of race – spend VALUABLE TIME, WRITING.
