“When things feel murky and unsure, fine tuning our hearing so as to distinguish the voice of our Innermost Self brings clarity.”
― Kristi Bowman
If you didn’t read my last Wednesday’s check in (I didn’t write a check in on Sunday), it explains why I changed my mind and now I will be participating in NaNoWriMo. I finally finished transferring all of my WIPs and notes from Yarny to Scrivener. Today I am working on getting clear about which story I’ll be writing for NaNoWriMo and then creating an outline from the book Take Off Your Pants! by Libbie Hawker.
Reading Take Off Your Pants! has me rethinking which WIP I want to do during NaNoWriMo because the one that I mentioned during last Wednesday’s check in I still have some problems with; I’m afraid I won’t be able to finish the 50,000 words. I have another story line that I’ve made some notes on from this last summer that I think would be less complicated and more apt for me to be able to finish within the 30 days.
I’ve never finished NaNoWriMo (I’ve participated twice in previous years) and I am determined to reach the 50,000 goal this year with a first draft that I can work to completion.
OctPoWriMo is almost done, I only have one more prompt I have to write, and my total focus will be on NaNoWriMo.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Do you use Scrivener?
I hope you are doing well and I look forward to supporting you in your writing goals.
