How are you my sprinting little writers? Are you on track to make your 50k words for NaNoWriMo? Have you (gasp) finished already?
There’s only a few days left in the month and these are going to be the hardest. The holidays are now in full swing and you’re really starting to feel the pressure, from the goal, from the holidays, from family and friends, and of course from the ever present day job that you’ve got to juggle with everything else.
It’s distracting, heart wrenching at times and at this point in the marathon writing session that is NaNoWriMo you’re probably starting to feel every bit as exhausted as if you’d actually been running all month long. The good news is the goal line is in sight! This is the point where runners pull out their last bit of reserves, or dig past the place where they think they’ve already run out of resources.
Yup it’s time to sprint those last few yards.
Put your all into it, find that extra minute and just plow through those last few pages like your life depends on it. You can do it! And when you reach the finish line and that surge of accomplishment washes over you, you’ll know in every fiber of your writers heart that the effort was worth it.
Good luck NaNoWriMo’ers, I’ll see you at the finish line!
