Hi! There seem to be a lot of experienced Wrimos in this forum, so I figured I would ask this here. This is my first try at Nanowrimo, and my first attempt at novel-length fiction. My draft is already three times longer than the longest piece I had ever written! That's exciting! However, I'm terrified of burning out. How do you guys keep yourselves going once you've...gotten going? How do you avoid the dreaded blinking cursor of writer's block? I have been trying to finish each session on a mini-cliffhanger, so that I know where to begin when I pick up again later. That's helped tremendously, so I'm wondering if you guys have any other tricks that work for you. Thanks!
