NaNoWriMo — Prison of Your Word Count

Nanowrimo 1There are just a handful of days left for National Novel Writing Month 2013.  Is your muse roaming free and supplying you with details?  Or are you trapped in the prison of your word count?  Are your ideas orderly?  Or did your train of thought chug away to parts unknown?

A rhythm helps — a steady, quick beat.  Can you hear that?  It’s your word count going up.  In time for you to finish NaNoWriMo and win.  Can you hear it coming?  It’s rolling ’round the bend.

 Now WriMo-mo-mo!

Because that NaNoWriMo train keeps rolling…

(Okay… so I admit that my “stay-cation” is over and being back at work inspired the prison theme.  But it was still a fun song.)

NaNoWriMo Day 4

The fourth day dawns… I really wanted to hit the ground running this year. Unfortunately I am as slow at novel writing as ever. I remembered this post from last year – Billy Idol’s song became my personal theme.  Whether or not you are a writer I hope it will encourage you on some level.  And in hope of revving myself up to Wrimo-mo-mo, here’s a little rock and roll.

National Novel Writing Month

Affectionately known to participants as NaNoWriMo.  This year many of the logos have the slogan “Power-Up,” but I’m not finding my “on switch.”

When I start writing I just want a dull background noise, rather than music.  However, I’ve found that when I’m getting myself ready to sit down and write, having a song tag along helps – like a mental theme song.  Every few days I have to change my theme song, but apparently I have one “main title theme.”  Some of you already know what it is…

Just a quick disclaimer – I am absolutely not what is called a NaNoWriMo rebel.  I’m playing the game as it is designed.  Otherwise, where is my challenge?  That said….

With a rebel yell — Wri-Mo Mo Mo!
