NaNoWriMo Update … struggling with many things

Thursday, 17 November 2011  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

I was struggling with my daily goals, but now have caught up. The NaNoWriMo site says I need to write 1666 words a day to finish on time, which totally freaked me out because of the story I’m writing. I’m sort of fearing my story. Is it bad to have hot priests in my story like the guy above? Or the possessed priest I posted in an earlier post?

The Catholic guilt is getting to me. I know this story will be great, but I feel uncomfortable. It’s nothing I’ve ever written before. It’s darker. I’ve brought together good and evil, and questioned the foggy line between the two. 

Do you feel vulnerable in your writing? Do you touch on subjects that could have mixed reviews? Do you write from your heart instead of your head?
