“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” — Richard Bach
Nanowrimo is done and dusted for another year. How did you go?
This year is the first time I didn’t complete my goal and I’ve been feeling a bit down and cross with myself.
Then I looked at what I had accomplished. A manuscript that needs work. Thirty thousand plus words. But thirty thousand words more than if I hadn’t worked on the script when I could.
I’m looking at what I do have and what I can do with it. So I continue to write. Showing up each planned writing day to write 500 plus words (Fast 500).
Build on the habit you began with Nanowrimo. Write each day, in whatever time you have.
If your in the same boat, you’re not alone. Work on consistently adding words, until there is a manuscript to edit.
Be an amateur who doesn’t quit. You’ve got this, my writing friend. Have a fabulous day.
