Self Congratulations

Between 2 sick children, a busy week with school activities, and being sick myself I have still managed to keep up on my word count for NaNoWriMo.   In fact I am almost at 13,000 words.

I’m proud of myself for letting go of the need to edit and just type.  Is everything I am putting down perfect?  NO!  In fact some of it is just crap, but that’s what editing and revising are for.

I heard this quote the other day… “The first draft is for the writer. The subsequent drafts are for the audience.”, and it really rang true for me.

So I know that when the clock strikes midnight on December 1st I can look at everything I have written and just start polishing it until it is perfect.

Until then I will write, write, and write until I get to 50,000 words.
