I’ve been working on my snowflake for NaNo, and coming to grips with why I set this project aside in the first place.
I’m a detail oriented person, and I’m afraid of getting stuff wrong. I’m also afraid of doing too much research, and overwhelming my writing with needless detail padding.
NaNo is going to force me to write with minimal research – there won’t be the time to spare to be getting to in depth, and that is going to be very good for me.
And I keep telling myself – it’s only a book, it’s only a book.
If I mess it up – I can always re-write.
