You know, I’ve been pretty productive on the NaNo front for the past two weeks. You can tell due to the very short blog posts that have been coming lately. Most of my writing effort has been going into the story, and I think it’s because I have an honest to God deadline involved. I always felt like I wrote my best work in college and school at the last minute. It sounds counterproductive, but I think having that deadline looming is one hell of a motivator.
Or maybe a demotivator, depending on how much enthusiasm I have for something. I haven’t quite figured that out yet.
Either way, somehow I’ve been able to motivate myself to do something i haven’t really been able to do in a while – write. Perhaps the change of subject matter helped out too.
