I'm not sure who said it first but I've printed it out and posted it on the corkboard next to my desk where I can see it often.
"Write the first draft with the heart; the second with the head."
And that is just what NaNoWriMo is about.
When we write with our heart, we write the story that lives within us. We say to heck with the rules and write. We tell our inner editors to take a hike and get words on the page.
So, it's time to start coming up with a plan to deal with your inner editor. Here's a couple things that work for me.
Revise a bit of the previous day's writing to get warmed up.
Tell the inner editor there will be no revising and then when you get the urge to do so, ignore it. (Not as easy as it sounds and she'll protest but keep ignoring and she'll soon go sulk.)
Make a note in your manuscript to remind yourself to fix the spot later. Something like **fix later** works well.
I've had problems with my inner editor but the more I strive to "write the first draft with the heart" the easier it's become.
So, how about sharing any tips that work for you and your inner editor.
