So NaNoWriMo is not as easy as it sounds. In fact, it doesn’t even sound easy and it’s actually harder than that. Its difficulty can be boiled down to this one unfortunate fact: words do not pour forth from my fingertips like water from a spigot. Although I do like that word: spigot. I am currently only up to 4,000-odd words, and I am one week behind schedule. That’s fine.
