It’s so close I can smell it! I’m not just talking about the yummy Thanksgiving Meal I’ll be enjoying later today. Just over one week until the end of National Novel Writing Month! If you haven’t reached the 50K word goal yet, I encourage you to keep pushing. Even if you don’t quite make it or are far from that mark. You deserve a round of applause just for trying your best to get there. NaNoWriMo is definitely a challenge where participation awards are just as valuable. How many times as writers have we heard from friends and strangers “I wish I could write a novel” but they’ve never actually tried? So many I wish I got paid every time. So bust out that laptop, tablet, notebook, pen, and paper and get to writing!
