Congratulations for reconnecting to your creative side. You'll find your entire life changed by it and may never look at things the same again. In a good way, of course. :tongue:

Nano is a lot of fun and a bunch of us partake in the challenge. Sometimes it's best to jump in with both feet and just do it. Put the Internal Editor and fear away and make it all about you and the words. Considering how much research you've said you've done, it might help. The need for words will stop you thinking about all that you have learned, and it can then be internalized as you just write.

As a writer, that's the most important thing: to write.

Dean Wesley Smith tells his students at all his workshops to learn learn learn during the workshop. Then go home and forget what you learned, because trying to remember every point that you learned will keep you in critical voice when you want to be in creative voice. What you have learned will filter down through your fingers, never fear, but you need to allow it to do that.

So, join us in writing like crazy. Allow what you have learned to filer down into your fingers while you write creatively. :smiley:
