What am I learning with Nanowrimo? That I hate trying to think about what my word count should be. That when I’m this nervous about a project, I need to outline everything. Given that I am planning a reasonably complex story, I need to have more things planned out in order to make sure that they fit together. Just like what I used to do when I was stuck on a piece back in school. I would outline everything until I found myself outlining each paragraph.
Another thing that I need to do is write the parts out that I have firm in my mind. I have scenes already beginning to unfold, I just need to write them down so that I can think about the harder scenes. Just like in a test. Write out all of the answers that you know right away and then fill in the blanks.
