Almost halfway there, and a long, long way to go
Little by little, I'm getting closer to my goals. I know some of you are crossing that halfway point, and some of you may have already surpassed 50,000, and some of you may be way behind and thinking of giving up. But don't. Because as long as you're showing up and moving forward, you're winning too.
This challenge is for fun. A low stake gamble on yourself, a blank page playground waiting to become. Become whatever you want it to be. Whatever you create, protect the courage to keep showing up.
Wherever you are in this journey, you're not alone. Behind this screen are thousands (millions?) of us cheering you on. So grab your pen, keyboard, or markers, and keep writing.
Come back next week to see how it's growing and if I get any closer to my projected goals or if I fall further behind. If you're doing NaNoWriMo, leave me a comment and let me know how it's going.
Lastly, if you don't know what a zero draft is, you should check out this link to Alexa Donne's short YouTube video on Fast Drafting Tips and Zero Drafts. Life changing! I've always wrote like this, but hearing that there was a name for it and that others wrote this way too, helped me to let go and write past fear, doubt, and uncertainty. So give it a try. Especially if you're feeling in a slump or stuck at this point, it could be the nudge you need to get back in it.
Ok, until next week. Happy writing, all!
