What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
If you finished NaNoWriMo, congratulations, you are amazing. You wrote 50,000 words in 30 days, and that is an incredible accomplishment.
Now, you have to keep writing. The same hustle that made you write those 50,000 words is going to be needed to polish them, to change them, and to turn them into a book you’re proud of. You can do it, because you now know that you can do anything you set out to do. So keep writing, you little writer, you.
If you almost finished NaNoWriMo, congratulations, you are amazing. I bet you wrote more words this month than any other month in your life, and that’s fantastic. While you may have not reached your word count goal, you have the words and the stories and the ideas and the creativity.
So keep writing. Don’t let all the stories you brainstormed during November stay locked in your head. Write them down.
If you barely started NaNoWriMo, congratulations, you are amazing. You wrote the first words of the first pages, and sometimes that is the hardest part. You’re going to be tempted to wait until next November to really try to write a lot. Don’t do that. You started something amazing, so keep it going. You lit a flame inside you…keep that burning.
Keep writing. A few words a day, a few pages a day, anything. Just keep writing.
And finally, if you thought about doing NaNoWriMo, but never got around to starting, congratulations, you are amazing. You’ve identified something you want to do–you want to write a book.
So start writing that book. Don’t wait for November, don’t wait for 2015, don’t wait for tomorrow. Write the first words today.
Congratulations, you are a writer. So keep writing.
