Many are knee-deep in NaNoWriMo this month. Every year, I’ve thought about participating, and every year, I am way too busy in October to prepare. Even with my current writing project, I have not outlined the final story in enough depth to write it. It’s not like I couldn’t write 50,000 words in one month. I wrote 205,000 in less than 6 months once, so 50,000 in one month is something I could accomplish.
To encourage those of you who have taken the plunge, or maybe you’re just writing on your own, here are some writing quotes:
Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.
The road to hell is paved with adverbs.
If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I would not brood, I would type a little faster.
Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.
You can make anything by writing.
C. S. Lewis
