I made it! Thirty days, thirty pieces of writing created from a prompt of three words. Some I liked, some I didn’t, but I made it through and that was the goal. I ended up creating more words than I would need. Here are the unused words:
ocean, woman, man, hatred, trails, mountain, shoelaces, tree, summer, Japan, lottery, gravy, plaza, duplicate, pants
I’m considering continuing with some sort of daily writing exercise, so let me know if you enjoyed this month-long peek inside my brain.
Now I’m gearing up for NaNo because November 1 is just two weeks from today. I still don’t have any solid idea of what I’m going to write. A couple of the story snippets I posted for the days of genius really appealed to me, so I might use them in the novel. Or I could always write a sequel to last year’s novel. Either way, I’m sure that on November 1, I’ll be writing something.
I’m thinking about posting my NaNo novel as I write it, but I’m not sure I’m that brave. After all, the order of the day for NaNo is velocity, and the novel I wrote last year is in pretty bad shape. A few hundred words a day with each day being unrelated is one thing, but nearly 2,000 words a day that are supposed to form a cohesive novel is something entirely different.
