Writer’s Block? More Like Writer’s Verbal Diarrhea

I started my third manuscript the other week, the one I’m supposed to be saving for NaNoWriMo in November, and have been flying through the first chapters. I’m so excited to be seeing these characters develop on the page and their querky habits come to life.

Frying Pan? Maybe a Pen is the best weapon

Too much fun!

I figured since NaNoWriMo aims for 50,000 words in a month, that leaves me an additional 25,000-30,000 words to finish my manuscript. So that means I could get started on it ahead of time. But now I’m almost half-way to that word count threshold and we’re not even halfway through October.

In comparison to the other problems I’ve had in writing over the last few years, I think this is a dilemma I’ll love having. Writers block sucks the big one. So Writers Diarrhea is a gift (forgive the image).

I have no idea how I’ll respond if I’m ever a published author with deadlines looming ahead of me from a prized book contract. But if that were the case right now, I’d be one of the most treasured authors of any agent or editor’s lineup!

  1. Honey, you’d be a treasured author regardless of deadlines! Love that this story is burning a hole in your pocket. Just keep the *ahem* prune juice flowing. 😉

    NaNoWriMo is horrible intimidating to me. My novel took two years and we are still working out the kinks. Writing an entire MS in a month is insane. I admire those who can handle the stress.

  4. I love it when my ideas keep flowing! It’s like sitting in front of the TV, but I control the outcome. Priceless.
