Yes, I missed a post last Monday. Parents moved and needed help unpacking, getting settled. Had two presentations to give (one for NaNoWriMo, one for NJ Soc of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). Held hostage by electricians coming and going fixing stuff. (You just sit down to work and they need to ask you a question...)
Did you hold off on writing because you waited for my post to inspire and motivate you?
Don't Wait For Me!
Don't wait for anyone. Or anything. Grab your writing time when you can. Yes, I could have made better use of my time on several occasions. And I'm sure you could have also. There are no acceptable excuses for not working to fulfill YOUR dream of writing that novel.
All is not lost; we're not even to the halfway point in days. (You should be around 20,000 words). If you aren't, you have time to make it up. Use it wisely. Be a miser when it comes to your time; anything that demands your attention must be worthy: family, friends, job, emergencies and WRITING.
I leave you now to finish this blog post, write another, do some more of my NaNoRevMo, and other writing chores.
Stay strong! Stay focused! Stay positive! Stay determined! Stay in the running!
Stay good to yourself.
