NaNoWriMo Day 12! 25k Down! 25k to go!

So, we’re 1/3 of the way (and some change) through NaNoWriMo! How is everyone feeling. I know that the week two blues probably set in for some of us, and I wanted to write this blog to let everyone know that it’s OKAY.

Even if you’re behind, it’s OKAY.

Even if you only have a few thousand words, it’s OKAY.

Even if you end up not hitting 50k, but still get your story started… it’s OKAY.

The simple fact of the matter is, sitting down and putting words to paper, putting YOUR story that no one else could ever put down out there? Well, that’s a pretty big accomplishment to me.

I have some friends who end up finishing NaNo out with 20,000 words, and feeling like a failure. Honestly though, I want you to sit down and think about it… who has the determination to sit down and bleed on paper for those 20,000 words? As writers, we tell the stories, we make up the words… we give people fuel for dreams. Don’t be ashamed if you couldn’t crank out a pre-determined amount of words in a month. Be PROUD that you are a writer.

And don’t feel like you can’t get caught up. All it takes is one good day of inspiration to suddenly find yourself with 5,000 words, 10,000 words. Even more. No matter, what just remember… you’re amazing, and no on else on this planet can do what you’re doing right now.

Not with your words. Not with your story. You are unique.

If anyone feels down about NaNo, needs a pep talk, or just needs a friend, tweet me on twitter @egodominustuus !

Until next time, guys! Keep reading and writing!
