Week Four brings victory. You have done what few dare to attempt- you have written an entire novel! By the end of this week, you are officially a novelist.

#57 NaNoWriMo Week Three

By Week Three you've generally got a writing schedule down, and putting down the necessary 1,667 words a day feels comfortable. You're over the grueling halfway point of week 2 and well on your way to winning. The only thing between you and a finished novel is keeping up the momentum you've already got by working hard.

One Year Anniversary

This is the one year anniversary of Life Imitates Comics. I have put up one comic page- in full color- every Friday for every week for one full year (plus some extras here and there). To celebrate, here's another picture I made in MS Paint.

#56 NaNoWriMo Week Two

In week two, the reality of the situation sets in. You look at your novel and realize just how far away the finish line is, and how many other things you need to put off in your life for a full month to be able to finish. To make matters worse, your ideas start to dry up. Why did you think you could do this?

The 20,000-30,000 word period is, I feel, the hardest part of NaNoWriMo. The trick is to just get through it as fast as you can, since if you can get through week two you can get through ANYTHING else NaNoWriMo can throw at you. This is the week where perseverance matters the most; in week 3 things always gets better.

#55 NaNoWriMo Week One

The first week is exhilarating. Your progress is smooth and constant, and the words come easily. You know where you want this novel to go, and every day you get a little closer. It's about being inspired, and putting as many words on the page as you can in a first burst of energy.
