In 2 hours and 14 minutes, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) will kick off. I feel like giving it a better go this year than I’ve done in the past. Previously, I’ve given up after about three days because I’m a bit too much of a perfectionist to simply write 50,000 words in only 30 days. I think part of the problem was that I had to take an idea and keep it going throughout the month. My ideas sort of ran out of steam, or I just couldn’t figure out where to take them.
