It’s this time, before Nanowrimo starts, that I start to stress and wonder if fighting with myself for an entire month is really worth the outcome….
I’ve already seen some people really bashing the whole “50,000 words in one 30 days” thing and talking about how un-creative it is to push yourself to complete a story that long, in such a short time. Some of which are the same ones that bickered about it last year too (and probably the year before) and I’ve seen them really step on those of us that want to do it and find the challenge enjoyable.
What is the point?
If it’s not your thing, Cool! If it is, even Cooler! 🙂
But let’s try not to shove our opinions down someone else’s throat and belittle them. It breaks my soul when I’ve been talking to someone (especially someone younger than me) and find out they had tried Nanowrimo once before and never finished it because they were being picked on and made to feel like it really wasn’t that important, and that they were wasting their time. 😦
Your writing matters!
Weither you finishing the word goal or not, Nanowrimo can be such a helpful tool in the creative process of completing a novel.
And the community is well worth it too!
Even if you just join to make friends and follow your own word count goals, its worth it.
And BOO to anyone who say’s otherwise! lol
