Inspiration usually comes during work, not before it.
Over the last four days, I’ve been typing, typing, typing, and this quote has started to make so much sense. It’s when I sit down to write, turn off the distractions, and start throwing words on the page that I get ideas.
I don’t get them instantaneously, of course. A lot of the time, I feel like I’m rambling just to make my word count. And that’s frustrating, because I know I might go back over my manuscript and delete half of it once it’s all done. But that’s also the beauty of NaNoWriMo — that I can write stuff that may well be crap, but once it’s all over my ideas are finally down on the page, finally finished, and I can move on to the next step.
And right now, I truly believe I WILL finish, because when I sit down to ramble, more ideas keep coming my way.
