A brief congratulations for those who competed in NaNoWriMo
Did you complete your 50,000 words on time? Even if you didn't, you gave it one hell of a shot. And if you did . . . CONGRATULATIONS!
Does one need to wait until November to write the first draft of your novel at near-lightning speed? Oh, no. Just write 1,667 words in a single day. Believe me, it may seem like a lot, but once you get going, I'm sure you find the words flowing out like water from a hose.
Even though NaNoWriMo is over doesn't mean your writing has to stop. Keep going, keep writing, and excel at your craft.
