Had my first low word count day. While I had a cushion to work with from my consistent 2,000-word days since NaNoWriMo began, but I need a larger cushion to work with for when I return to work on Wednesday. Today I going to work on a few word sprints and a word war (or two). I need to increase the speed with which I write, and I think these techniques will help.

Speaking of techniques, I have utilized a modified version of the Pomodoro Technique, using blocks of time to write without distractions and taking breaks in between. You can read more about the technique here. It has been a big help so far. While I don’t believe any one technique is superior to another, this particular method works for me. And with the crazy month that is NaNoWriMo, I’ll take whatever I can get.
