NaNoWriMo – Week 2 (Recap)

This week there was a strong compulsion to edit what I wrote last week. It’s like moving furniture into a house but getting sidetracked after only one room because you want to make sure that sofa is positioned perfectly.

I’ve discovered the easiest way to combat this is just to write that concern down and keep going. Keeping that criticism/concern inside meant dedicating too many minutes to whether or not something should be fixed or if it even needs fixing. Writing it down shuts up that inner voice and adds to my daily writing total. 🙂  

Plus, what seems like a big issue at first is knocked down to size when it’s confined to a few sentences.
