Some sound NaNoWriMo advice: Tell everyone you know that you are doing this, and tell them well before November starts. Otherwise, you may be tempted to give up on day two.
Only the threat of public shame defended me yesterday against my sense of defeat on Day Two. I woke up and typed for about 45 minutes and promptly lost whatever I had written in a battery meltdown.
I worried all morning about how I would survive November if my laptop had a battery problem.
I struggled to find inspiration while I sat with my laptop on my hour-long train commute.
I struggled again on the train ride home and even fell asleep with my face against the window.
Finally, with some encouragement from my wife, I spent a few hours organizing my notes and my outline. And I’m feeling inspired.
