I know many writer folks are deep in the throes of NaNaWriMo, but I know of another project that's frankly easier, NaNoWriWee. Yes, you guessed it. Instead of National Novel Writing Month, it's National Novel Writing Week, and it occurs this week. Basically, it's the same idea in that you write furiously, trying to get the max number of words down that you can. I've done this in previous years and it is really liberating. It kills off the internal editor that can stymie writing progress.

For those of you who want to try NaNoWriWee, or those doing NaNoWriMo, or those just trying to meet their usual word goals, author James Preston has some good writing advice over at Writers in the Storm Blog: One Appproach to Genre Fiction, or "This Way to 'The End'". Check it out.

Good luck with your writing!
