I tell stories
100 words, or sometimes more

NaNoWriMo – NaNoWriMo #30

She asked, what is it with you and 100 words?

The challenge, really. Most stories are about the words you use. These are about the ones you don’t.

And NaNoWriMo? 50,000 words in a month? That’s hardly not using words.

Still a challenge. People do it for the same reason.

What’s that?

Force themselves to actually write. The story in your head is never the one that appears on paper. Writing means making imperfect copies, taking your golden idea and turning it into lead. It’s hard.

So why do it?

I shrug. This isn’t about writing. It’s about having written.


30 for 30. And now, I think I’ll take a break for a couple of weeks. Back before Christmas!
