"Wasted" Words

Stop Writing Alone

When you are in creation mode, words are precious -- we begin counting them and may become miserly in our distributions. This week’s episode explores where we could be “wasting” our words online instead of writing in our novels.

Stop Writing Alone

It’s often called the muddy middle, that part of your novel writing that feels like you are slogging through and some of the fun is gone. In NaNoWriMo, it often starts to surface in week three. This week Nicole discusses how to identify what might be sucking the fun out of your writing, and how you may be able to bring it back!

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that 2020 has been an atypical year. However, thanks to Emma Isaacs of the Creative Ways podcast, Nicole is thinking about and talking about the fact that maybe this year we may need a reminder to take a minute for rest and self-care.
