Inner editor

From Wikiwrimo
Jump to: navigation, search

The inner editor, also known as the inner critic, is the part of the writer that constantly aims for quality while writing. While the inner editor is excellent to have on hand in the revision process, the constant inner criticism can be harmful to one's ego and output while producing a first draft during NaNoWriMo and Script Frenzy. Because of the quantity over quality mantra that these events encourage, writers attempt to set aside their inner editors, call their muses, and write to their heart's content.

No Plot? No Problem! features a button in the book one can push to take away one's inner editor (and return it after the first draft is complete). The NaNoWriMo Store also featured a mug that would free the inner editor when filled with a hot liquid. Unfortunately this mug is no longer for sale.
