Wednesday Writer Club: Keep up the steam with Nano-Write or Die!
For me, the second week was probably the hardest. I had blown through a ton of extra words, but then the second week, I started having a really hard time keeping up the pace.
One of the things that really helped me was pushing myself through writing sprints (thanks, Twitter!) and using Write or Die by Dr Wicked.
It's a simple and brilliant concept. You set a goal (either time or word count) and begin typing. As long as you keep going, you'll be fine.
But bad things happen if you stop.
*Thunderclap and evil laughter*
You can set the level of intensity, from gentle reminders, to the point where your words will slowly be erased if you procrastinate.
If you need a kick in the pants and the coffee just isn't quite strong enough, give it a try.
