[07/09/05] Welcome to Week 2!!

Week two starts up for all of us at Julnowrimo. I hope that you all
are typing away. This is where the sweet spot is. You have your plot
in your head, you are typing at hilarous speeds and your mind just
floats away with you as your characters take over and their world
becomes your own. Whether their world is grounded in our reality or
thiers, it begins to take over and your lives all meld, creating a
space of time and depth that is what you choose to write with.

Where, in week one, we looked out the window and struggled with
wanting to go outside and play in the dazzling sunlight, in week two,
the dazzling sunlight has been shut out as we take to our computers
and delve deeper into our own minds than we had orginally thought we
could go. Amongst the Icee containers and the hot dog remains, we have
found a piece of ourselves that we want to be immortalized. We have
found a way to take the world around us and place that world in our
own viewpoint.

For those of us struggling right now (which I am doing), do not give
up hope!! Rethink your word count, go over your outlines (if you have
them), rethink your characters, but do not give up. There are many
wonders that can come from writing, and you still have plenty of time
to catch up to all of those who are racing ahead of you. Become the
writer that you want to be. Having a sprint or two, or coming over
the the Nanochat room (www.goodchatting.com/nanowrimo) and doing a
word war can do wonders for your writing. Another tip, which is one
that I use, is to look for journals or places with daily writing
prompts. Look at the prompt and think about how you can work that
prompt into your novel or your own writing. Don't let the waters of
your writing get stagnant. Word counts are in reach, just write!

Remember that you can do this. I have faith in all of you, struggling
or not, to do your best.

Write on!
