So. It’s that last full week of NaNoWriMo. Are you on top of this, or are you, like me, behind? Are you thinking things like what’s the point, I’ll never get done in time, I can’t write anything good anyway, and I can’t think anymore? You have? WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF LITERATURE!!!
Ask any great writer, and they’ll tell you the same thing. I feel it right now, but I’m slowly getting through things. It’s easiest when you know what you’re getting into, but for those who don’t know, here’s a word of advice. Writing is only for those who can’t stand their ideas being exclusively theirs. Writers don’t just think, “Hmmm. This is a good story that can get me enough money to live off of.” NO! Writers are those crazy people who can’t stand it when their stories aren’t out there. They want to show the world their stories, because they have no choice. If this isn’t you, then you’re going to find writing to be one of the hardest things ever done. Most writers do as well, but they have a strong passion to simply get it out.
Don’t stress though. You’re in NaNo for a reason. You want your story to be out there. That’s a great start, but don’t stop there. Keep on working, and make sure not to forget about editing after your first draft is complete. Now I must go and procrastinate for a while.

Also, if you ever feel like donating to the “Make sure Hero doesn’t die fund” I would not be mad at all. Paypalfirstname.lastname@example.org
