NaNoWriMo Day 21: Risk and Reward

As someone who spent many years in the finance world, risk and reward are often uttered in the same breath. The more money you’re willing to risk in the portfolio, the larger the monetary reward. It all comes down to, how much are you willing to sacrifice in order to gain?Woman at bridge at risk

For nano, risk it all

The object of the game in November is to simply get the words down. Get that story out. For some, they may not work that way. It may simply not be part of the process. However, many writers can gain from using this month to get the story out of their head and on paper. It isn’t the time for editing or fretting over word choice. That can come in December and beyond.

As I mentioned before, that inner editor will do all they can to break free in November. But with nine days left, try to restrain them for just a little bit longer. It can be a difficult process, almost as difficult as the writing itself. But learning to be able to write freely and openly is something that at we don’t always have the luxury of doing.

So take advantage of this opportunity to do so. Risk it all. Lay it all on the line. Right now there are no rules. And seriously how many times do you get to play with your writing with no rules?

When it comes to writing, Nano is the portfolio to risk it all. The rewards will be worth it in the end.
