So far, what I’ve picked up from my first NaNoWriMo is this: the hardest parts of any writing session are (a) getting started in the first place and (b) starting a new scene. Once I get rolling on a given scene, it’s easy – provided I don’t worry about researching anything and just put brackets with reminders to myself about where I need to fill in details later. Dialogue, especially involving any kind of disagreement, comes very easily, and inner turmoil fills out my word count faster than I even realize as I’m writing it.
Whether this says something about me as a person (confrontational, are we?) or whether it’s related to the fact that there is inherent conflict in those types of passages, I’m not sure. 😉
Another short post that’s more observation than anything else, but until the end of November, it seems this is all my brain is capable of blogging about.
