I was happily writing away at my nano entry the other night, and realized I kept having strange thoughts. I would write something and instantly think "Dang, they're gonna tear that one apart."
It's funny how after you've been with a critique group so long you know how they view certain aspects of your writing and what you need to do to change things. It's like having an automatic editor in your head yelling at you each time you write was, had or anything else too common in your paragraphs.
But I didn't stop and for the most part I'm not editing. When you're trying to pound out 50,000 words in 23 days, it's difficult to keep yourself from getting sidetracked. My hubby read a section last night and started suggesting alternatives and I shouted "I'm not editing! I'm writing the rough draft -- the editing is later." He slunk away and I finished writing my goal for the day.
He really is a sweetheart.
So far I'm at 7200 words. How are you doing with your goals?
