When you find some of your kid’s stickers and you’re in the midst of trying to win NaNoWriMo but a distraction seems like a good idea, you look up Yoda quotes. If you give a writer a second to let their mind wander, it usually happens. Squirrel!
So today’s Yoda quote is, “Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”
I accepted the challenge to compete in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), which challenges writers of all kinds to write 50k words during the month. I didn’t do it last year because of a laundry list of things. This year that mountain of chores and responsibilities are still here but I said to hell-with-it! There’s never going to be a good time, every year I’ll come up with reasons why I can’t do it. That’s not what this challenge is about. Excuses. Nope.
It’s about committing to trying, accepting if I fail, and learning from the experience. I am going to win though. I’ll sleep in December because in November I write!
