Finding Music in Writing: Camp NaNoWriMo Days 18 & 19

Camp NaNoWriMo Days 18 & 19!

Ever thought about how typing out a short story and playing the piano are two similar activities? They even have some overlap in vocabulary.

I really do believe that my learning how to play the piano at a young age has trained my fingers to be good at typing. And when it comes down to it, when I’m in the zone and steadily tapping away at my novel, the sound of the keyboard is a soothing one. It tells me that there is beauty in routine. It tells me that progress is being made.

Today’s haiku:

I keep my own time
I weigh my words in keystrokes
Make a metronome
