Watch these tips instead!
Hello folks! As I’m writing this, it’s about to become November ninth. That means we’re almost a full third of the way through Nanowrimo. And at some point–in either the past few days or the next few days–you’re going to hit what us veterans call the second week slump. You hate, or are going to hate, your novel.
I am here to help! In my thirteen years of writing books I’ve hated all of them at some point, but I’ve (almost) always pushed through and finished the damn manuscript. I might have metaphorically burned the manuscripts afterwards (actually printing and burning it would be a waste of paper), but the things always got written. Today I’m going to share some of the strategies I used to get to “The End”, even when I hated my novels.
