Friday Fun…NaNo Style!

LOL – I need this picture on my mirror as a reminder every time I walk by…but it would probably be more of a distraction! I already have enough distractions without adding more; still, I press onward with the daily challenge. I am doing my best to silence my inner critic and just let the words flow once I set my fingers to the keys…and that’s the most difficult part.

I have to keep my survival tips in mind:

1. Don’t obsess or correct when writing…just write!

2. Take breaks. Get outside and fiddle with the plants or watch the animals…just breathe the fresh ocean air and relax!

3. Eat healthy. Feed the body, feed the mind, and feed the soul. Think positive!

4. Move around. Stretching, exercise, and meditation help with creativity.

5. Last, but certainly not least: have fun! Challenges are to be met with a smile, not with trepidation – so, just do it!

Here are three songs from my NaNoWriMo playlist – music always inspires me, and Friday is a perfect day to lay down some solid tunes, so…enjoy! See you all later.

    I’m so clueless that I had to Goggle up what “NaNoWriMo” meant. Obviously I’m not a writer & we are all better off for that saving.

    Oh my Loki β™₯ I’d have a hard time balancing writing and staring at him if he were really present telling me that hehe.

    Yep, must have music as I write. Enya always works for me.

      I love Enya…her music and voice is very soothing and inspiring. I tend to listen to classical, blues, and jazz when I write – the harder stuff is for when I’m gaming.

    I’m definitely guilty of #1. I tell myself to just let the words flow, but can’t seem to stop over-editing as I go.

      LOL – forcing myself to not edit too much is the most difficult part of this challenge, I think! I have to stare at the wall, or out of the window to let my thoughts flow freely. If I stare at the screen while typing, my inner critic starts screaming at me!
