NaNoWriMo 11/23 Words For Week 4

A few words from Chris Baty (You won’t see my words today, I’m trying to catch up!)

    ~~  11.23.14  ~~

~~ 11.23.14 ~~

“Dear Writer,
     This is where it all comes together. Week Four. The sink or swim, do or die, zero hour. Or hours. You have 168 of them left. Assuming you sleep eight hours a night and are otherwise occupied twelve hours per day, that’s sixteen hours – or 1,680 plump, succulent word-filled writing minutes – ahead of you.
     …You are on the verge of pulling off something incredible here. You have many more words to write and, given the short time remaining, success may involve hard work.But over these past three weeks you’ve honed all the skills you need to pull this off – to glide over the finish line.
     You can do this. Just make the time to write, however much time it takes. Move forward, relentless, determined, confident.
     And as you cross these last few miles, savor them. For the pain is almost over, and the celebrations are about to begin.” (pp. 143-145)

Here’s an idea from my husband. He says, to get my word count up, I should insert some pictures; they’re worth a thousand words, right??? Love him!  ❤
