An except from the latest “Pep Talk” email from the founder of NaNoWriMo, Chris Baty:
If you’ve fallen behind on your word count or lost the thread of your story, you may think no breakthrough will be big enough to save your book. Take heart: There are 300,000 of us out there right now living that exact same movie. We’re all struggling to balance our books with the crazy stuff life has chucked at us these past two weeks. We’re all wondering if we have what it takes to see this thing through. And we’re all about to stand up, dust ourselves off, and go kick some major ass.
The long, dark night is ending, my friend. The homestretch lies ahead.
I’ll see you at the finish line.
Chris Baty is the founder of NaNoWriMo and a Board Member Emeritus at the Office of Letters and Light.
