Mini Nano for Wimps
Some of my friends are doing Nano -- setting themselves the challenge of writing 50K in a month.
I'm not so brave. I've set myself the challenge of writing 25K, a Mini Nano.
I could list my excuses but I won't. We all have work and families.
I've started a new job and find it eats into my time, much more than 'two days a week' should. So I've started carrying around a little laptop. I call it 'Baby Bug'. My sons laugh at me. But it helps having a lap top that's small enough to fit in my bag. I can pull it out anywhere and start writing.
I know a friend who goes to a coffee shop, so she has coffee on tap, and no family interruptions.
What do you do to keep up your word count? Do you set mini goals, like my Mini Nano? Do you carry around a note pad, or a lap top? Do you run away to write?
