Don't Give Up.
Sound odd? It's not. I have a lot of irons in the fire. You know what I mean; you can't just do ONE thing... that would be illogical (can you tell I watched too much Star Trek as a child?).
So when I started NaNoWriMo I made a specific goal not to give up. Writing 50k in one month can be overwhelming. Heck, writing 50k at all can be intimidating. Anyone remember that dreaded assignment in high school called the term paper? Some of us have had the luxury of writing that fabled thesis. There are a lot of words in both. And yes, it's not easy. It's darned hard.
But is that enough reason to give up?
So I'm going to keep plugging away. I know the story will come out okay and since I have more than just three goals, I'll be fine.
How are you doing? I can't wait to find out. : )
