Writers participating in NaNoWriMo are heading into the home stretch. While there are eight days left for writing, I wanted to encourage everyone who signed up, no matter if they’ve written their 50,000 words already or only managed 50 words all month.
Look at you! You took on a big bad challenge and you took a swipe at it. You wrote this month, even if it wasn’t as much as you’d hoped. You probably love books and maybe you’ve always longed to be a writer. And now you are one.
You may not be as far along as you’d like. 50,000 words may seem out of your reach. But celebrate what you have done already.
To have reached this point is no small achievement:
what you’ve done already is a wonderful thing.
— C. V. Cavafy
The best news? You still have eight more days to add some words. So treat yourself to more time with your novel and celebrate every word you get written.
Plenty of people dream of writing a book.
You are actually doing it.
How is your November going?
