The Secret

The secret of Nano is not to open my browser until I've written 2000 words. It's a better incentive than chocolate.

You're out writing me. (But then, don't you always?) Good job.

I find that hard to believe. I've known you write 10,000 words in a day and not break into a sweat!

And here I am, beavering away at the final chapter of my WIP.

Thanks for reminding me stop being such a naughty boy...

fairyhedgehog said...

I wouldn't want to stop you being a naughty boy, Whirl!

JaneyV said...

That sounds like a very good idea. I must try it tomorrow. Too late for today though...

fairyhedgehog said...

I hope I manage to stick to it.

mynfel said...

I need to do this too...and add Tweetdeck to the list.

*sigh*

fairyhedgehog said...

You'll have to let us know how you get on, mynfel.

LOL! I think you've just written the epitaph for this entire era.

I hide my bookmarks. Same sort of logic. Funny, when I was a child I would never eat my peas, despite the promise of dessert. But withholding RSS feeds, that's much more difficult to resist!

Words to live by FH! Now if only I could live by them...

fairyhedgehog said...

Kate, that's a bit grander than I was intending.

Sylvia, staying offline gets rid of so many distractions. Even the bribe of chocolate wouldn't be enough once those posts are just a click away.

Robin, I did it again today. One day at a time is all I can manage.

I think you're right and that pretty much is the secret to NaNoWriMo.

It's working so far, SH!

sylvia said...

You are awesome! Loving your word count - go go go!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, sylvia!

Robin S. said...

I'm gonna try your way tomorrow and see what I can accomplish. Thanks for the kick in the tail (in a nice way, because it's you doing the kicking) re this issue!

fairyhedgehog said...

I hope it works, Robin!
