NaNoWriMo Day 16

My mom has been grounded for a few weeks waiting for her eye doctor to sign off on her driver's license and the paperwork on that to go through, so I've had a few early mornings driving her to errands and appointments. Since mornings are my best writing time, that's taken a bite out of NaNo.

My writing strategy this week has been to do timed writings. Pick a chapter I need to work on, read what I've written on it so far, what I have planned for it, then give myself 15 minutes to do some non-stop writing on the chapter without reconsulting my notes. Timed writing forces you to write whatever comes to mind, and sometimes think outside the box.

That's actually helped me to reconceptualize my chapters a little, stretch them some.
