No Rules. No Guarantees.


Hey, nobody said NaNoWriMo (or writing in general) was going to be easy. But there's another message in that sign. Take chances, make the courageous, daring choice, write hard. No one wants to read another version of what's come before. No one wants the same thing, warmed over, and served cold. This is a time to be bold and foolish with your writing; you just might like the outcome.

I can do foolish. :D

Bethany Wiggins said...

Isn't foolish more fun? Yes. And if you're having fun writing, won't you want to write more? Yes. Thanks for the post.

Loving these posts! And yeah. Play at your own risk. Because it is worth it.

Jamie - Hope so.

Cate - Huzzah for that!

Thanks for stopping by, Bethany. Fun is good. Anything to keep writing.

Katey - It is worth it. Every minute.

I love that sign. And it's so true about writing, and NaNo too.

Excellent advice! And that is why I added a ninja to my nano book today. That and desperation.

"Take chances, make the courageous, daring choice, write hard." That's a really cool thought. Great post, short with a powerful punch.
