It all began with a text message saying, “Are you up for the first word war of the season?” During a word war, a group of us write insanely on our manuscripts for a predetermined period of time, and whoever writes the most is declared the winner. It’s a motivational tool for NaNoWriMo, and I find them extremely effective. The first word war began at midnight, marking the beginning of this year’s NaNo.
It was a disaster. I have been so extremely busy and distracted that I haven’t had the time to dream about my story like I usually do. My inspiration and writing was stilted. No no no!!
Then I came to my senses. It was only the first day. I’ve been stewing on the plot every spare second, and I still believe that magic will happen.
All right! Back to NaNoing, all!
