NaNoWriMo – 3 – You Can Do This

30 days in the word mines

Have I mentioned Chuck Wendig?

*blinks*   I haven’t?

Well, Chuck is a writer and writing blogger, or is that blogging writer?  He blogs about writing and has a huge following, and he’s a writer. His blog recently celebrated its 15th birthday , so if you look there you will see some amazing statistics…like millions of views.    <_< !

I’ve found myself inspired and enlightened more than once by thoughts and suggestions he’s shared.
(examples of his influence: Beginnings and First Drafts  )

This year he has, once more, generously shared written inspiration for WriMos on his blog.  But,,, he has also written a 30-days-of-inspiration book called 30 Days in the Word Mines.

Day 1 Chuck’s thought was:
YOU CAN DO THIS. Trust me.

Day 2 he says (among other things)
Okay, so that probably wasn’t all that helpful.
     Beginning a story is, for me, terrifying.
     …Get shut of all of that.
     …Club your self doubt to death with a claw hammer.

 Wendig, C. (2014). 30 Days in the Word Mines. Terribleminds.

Chuck Wendig has a web site and a blog among other things.


For the most part, this blog is about reading and writing m/m romances, but there are a few personal reflections, some writerly information, and a bit of writing practice. Thank you for stopping by.
