Feeling lost and haunted by wordcounts unmet?
Or wishing NaNo was your thing in the first place?
I see you.
There’s hope. Writing doesn’t need a strict timeline to happen. There doesn’t have to be some grand “starting day” for words to start hitting the page, and there certainly doesn’t have to be a designated month when writing happens.
Your story can still get written.
I’m calling it. It’s time, right now, to stop concentrating on the past and start thinking about your story.
Maybe that sounds impossible. You’ve been trying all month to just think about the story, but too much thinking and the wordcount doesn’t get met, or you just end up seeing everything that’s wrong with what you’ve already written. And you’re beyond frustrated.
Yep, I see you.
You need a quick, invigorating shower in the words of those who have gone before.
So get ready to snap your head back into writing-readiness with the advice and encouragement of authors, editors, and agents.
17 minutes, and you’ll be raring to write again.
