As you can see, it is not a very impressive start to NaNoWriMo this year. The zero WPD’s book-ending the week certainly don’t help any.
So what’s the problem?
Chiefly speaking it is my inability to turn off my internal editor while I write. All I can manage is to mute him, and then only for short spells. Secondly, the subject matter of my project ( NOVUS ORDO ) is an idea-rich work. I find articulating ideas intelligibly much more difficult than action sequences, descriptive exposition or dialogue (except when I’m using character dialogue to flesh out said ideas.)
Moving ahead, I will try to get some writing done every day this coming week. (This morning’s session produced 818 words)
Additionally, should I get stuck on Novus Ordo, I will switch to a different project until the block is broken. Finishing a novel this November would be nice, but my main goal is to train my internal editor and so up my daily words per day to a consistent day in and day out 3 thousand.
Hope y’all are having a more productive time of it!
