Nanowrimo Week Two

I am on target with word count but need to get myself a little bit ahead this weekend to make up for the times I will not be able to write. I have hit the wall a few times and the voices whisper. The say “there is no way you can do this” or worse, “you can finish the word count but you are boring and terrible. Your level of suckage is not even exciting enough to be terrible – it is just mundane.”

I hate the voices. I want them to be hit by a train. I want to be the engineer of that train and gleefully blow the whistle as I roll over the internal critics and laugh as I hear them gasp their last dying breath….I want to kick some negativity ass so hard that I break my toe and hop around cursing until I am mad enough to write again.

Okay. I am now over 18000 words and I am psyched up enough to write a good fight scene. I hope….Shut up voices. I can do this. I can.

      the voices can’t make up their minds lol – sometimes they do help the story along – other times they suggest solitaire, facebook, twitter, anything but the story!

    Sounds like you’re doing great (and right on schedule, according to the whole psychology of NaNoWriMo). The voices are just a virus, a thin script that runs when you are feeling vulnerable. Turn them into a character on the page and watch them writhe. Good luck!

    I second the thought that I’d be lost without my voices!! Also, sounds like you and I are about in the same place – about halfway through. We’re good! We’ll make it!
