Writing in the Flurry

by | Nov 15, 2011 | Fiction Book Reviews | 5 comments

I have a tendency to get more done when I have less time. Anyone else like that? When forced to produce something, then I am more efficient. Deadlines work for me – challenges work even better.

That’s why I’ve unofficially been doing NaNoWriMo. 50k words in a month is a bit steep for me (as a full-time working mother of five), but pushing myself to achieve as close to 50K as I can, has really pushed me to WRITE

and write often

(without neglecting my other responsibilities)

It’s forced me to ‘find’ time.

I am at about 20K – and a bit shocked by it. PROUD and shocked.

What about you? What’s your writing style? What meets your writing needs? Do challenges work for you?

    Good for you, Pepper! That’s AWESOME! I tend to work better with a deadline too, which is probably why I’m moving so slowly in my non-deadline world right now. LOL

    That’s great, Pepper! Especially with your busy life! I’m so excited that I hit the 40,000 mark today! Wow. Who knew I could write so fast. Course it needs a LOT of revising. But that’s okay, too!

    Keep up the good work!
