How’s Your Writing Coming Along?

By Steph's Scribe @stephverni

How’s Your Writing Coming Along?It’s November 14, and you know what that means, right? Yes, next week is Thanksgiving, but it’s also the middle of November, better know to writers as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). It’s time to roll up those sleeves, pour yourself some strong, delicious, and flavorful coffee, put on your black clothing (the writer’s uniform), and hunker down with your writing! Get moving, my friends. We are just about halfway there.

Last night, I hit over 37,000 words. NaNoWriMo dictates that an average novel written during the month is about 50,000 words written for the month, the length of a small novel. My novel is going to be over that 50,000 word count because there’s a lot to this story I’m telling. So, don’t worry if you don’t complete your project in a month. The Night Circus and Water for Elephants were started during National Novel Writing Month, not completed during that time.

We can only do what we can do. We have lives, families, jobs, commitments, and a Thanksgiving turkey to defrost and then cook.

Just keep going, my friends.

Do your best.
