Nanowrimo ’10 Day 5: Check in with buddies

The nice thing about doing NaNoWriMo is that it’s a community. It’s set up to make the lonely task of writing less solitary. So if you have some Nano writer buddies, today’s a good time to check in with them, send some nano mail, and give some words of encouragement, pats on the back, and general hellos. It’s nice to have writer friends isn’t it? They understand the frustrations of creating entire worlds from thin air and the pleasures of finding that those worlds are actually pretty great.

Besides, knowing that you have comrades out there who are going through the same thing that you are, helps you to keep on moving forward with your own work.

The only bad thing about sending nano mail is that those words don’t count toward your 50k goal!
