I love the writing energy of the month. So many people all over the world are feverishly writing their novels. I’m sure the nanowrimo.org has the stats.
This year I didn’t have a new project slotted for November, but I used the month to really focus on my novel number two. To push it to the finish line. Most wonderful ideas and scenes are born when my brain is in a hurry. I love being surprised with what comes up. My characters delight me.
This is what I love most about writing—the creative frenzy and how my characters shape their stories, bit by bit, like a massive puzzle.
I also love the editing part of it, but this comes later.
