National Novel Writing Month is now half way through! If you’re one of those brave souls writing 1,667 words every day, stay strong! You’ve got less to go than you’ve already completed, so might as well just finish swimming to shore, right?
For those of you not NaNoWriMo-ing it, but playing along with your own goal, stay strong! Your goal was achievable, it was attainable, and it’s in reach, too, so don’t give up now. Giving up is a silly idea. You’ve got this and there’s not one person that doesn’t think you can make it (except for that guy down the street named Steve, and no one’s going to listen to him).
To help one another get over the hump and go sliding down the mountain to the finish line, here’s a convenient article you can comment on with any reflections you’ve learned so far. We’re all going to do full articles with all our reflections when this is over, but sharing a bit of misery and struggle as its happening has the wonderful effect of making each of us feel better, and importantly, not alone.
So share something you’ve learned, encourage one another on, and if you’re still waiting for your perfect moment to join the community—this is it!
