Happy early Thanksgiving! In honor of the holiday, I wrote a new blog post about appreciating your accomplishments as a writer, no matter how small they might seem in the moment. The mindset of a writer must be more flexible than the famous saying 'Go Big or Go Home'. Whatever you do, keep trying.
It's that time of year again--National Novel Writing Month. After years of hearing about NaNoWriMo, I decided three days into November that I would finally participate in an attempt to add 50,000 words to my 23,000-word work in progress. It quickly became apparent that if I wanted to reach that lofty goal by November 30th, I couldn't waste precious time fretting over forgotten details or pathetic descriptions. Instead, I needed to move full throttle towards the end of my first draft. Check out my blog post on the topic.
