NaNoWriMo Is…Inspiration

Inspiration usually comes during work, not before it.

–Madeleine L’Engle


Over the last four days, I’ve been typing, typing, typing, and this quote has started to make so much sense.  It’s when I sit down to write, turn off the distractions, and start throwing words on the page that I get ideas.

I don’t get them instantaneously, of course.  A lot of the time, I feel like I’m rambling just to make my word count.  And that’s frustrating, because I know I might go back over my manuscript and delete half of it once it’s all done.  But that’s also the beauty of NaNoWriMo — that I can write stuff that may well be crap, but once it’s all over my ideas are finally down on the page, finally finished, and I can move on to the next step.

And right now, I truly believe I WILL finish, because when I sit down to ramble, more ideas keep coming my way.
