NaNoWriMo: Fragments

So, an observation about this NaNoWriMo Rebel Blogging thingummy: I'm starting posts, getting them to a point where I'm not quite sure where to take them, and hanging on to them. I don't usually do this--I usually write a post in one sitting, even if I may return and edit it before actually posting. If I get lost, I just throw out the post. But my reluctance to throw out words is motivating me to write out as many thoughts as I can spit out reasonably fully formed, and then hang on to them for another later effort. This may end up with me having more patience for thoughts that take a while to sculpt. Or it may just end up with a lot of broken posts. We'll find out.

That is all.


  1. Do you suppose we're twins in another life? I swear sometimes you perfectly mirror my experience...

  2. I'm so far behind on my NaNo that I'm thinking of just bagging the darn thing. I mean, the idea of writing on it is literally depressing me.

  3. Hey, Josephine. You never know. :) It's always interesting to know that something isn't just me.

  4. Yo, Mals! I'm thinking of abandoning mine, too, so I'm not sure what to advise. (And I'm so slow in responding that you've probably decided one way or another by now.)

    I'm waiting to see if I get any writing done this weekend, though, before making a permanent decision.
