I gave my brain a bit of a rest this morning and didn't pound away at the keyboard right after my walk/jog and breakfast like I usually do. I sort of needed to let my head have some space to breathe and figure out where the structure of the story is going and to make some notes.

One good thing about the Nano format is that it forces me not to spend more time than absolutely necessary piddling around processing things. I have a tendency to overthink and over analyze (and yet manage to miss large bits of important things that would bear thinking of) if I let myself.

Honestly, I just diveboard shy if I do that for too long, and start viewing the novel I'm writing as the 12ft deep end of a pool that I don't feel ready to jump into. Thus, I need some much bigger, annoying kid on the ladder behind me going, "Just jump already, fatso!"
