There are people who worry about National Novel Writing Month. They say they write slow and feel out of the loop. Don't fret! Some of the best writers write slow--Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a good example. The point of nano is not to make everyone write "up-to-speed" but to give you a goal to focus on. To help to remind you that your end goal is to finish a work in progress. The key word being finish. It's difficult with all the information out there on the internet to sort through it and find what works for you-your own process and then stick to it. But that is the only way you can create a career. Without your own process, you're simply imitating others and the work won't shine. So- fear not, oh brave writers, your process however fast or slow will work for you! Happy Saturday.
