The Seemingly-Impossible Is Not As It Seems

It’s July 31st, and I think we know what that means.

In a very, very short time, Camp NaNoWriMo will officially be over for the second time this year. Participating writers everywhere will be scrambling to finish up those last words on their novels in order to meet their wordcount (I know I did last night!).

Screen Shot 2014-07-31 at 10.31.28 AMI set my goal pretty low this month, actually- only at 20,000. And I passed it by 1,000 words! Seeing the little bar on the statistics graph go above the goal line is seriously one of the best feelings I’ve had all week.

I’ve been talking a lot about crossing goal-lines and completing things recently because it’s really been one of the only things on my mind. My thoughts have constantly been centered around questions like “what do I have to do next?” and “what do I have to do to do that thing next?” and “holy mother of all things fluffy, how in the world will I finish this all in time?”.

Sometimes it might feel like things are impossible to do. You might have your list of three things you want to get to first, you might have all the things you need to complete them- but there still could be that point in time where you feel like all is lost, like there’s no way you could ever finish what you’ve started.

BUT YOU CAN.

I am absolutely positive you can.

I proved to myself that IΒ canΒ when I made those two big jumps in my wordcount to catch up. And just like I sat down with an extra-chocolatey hot chocolate and wrote until my fingers bled (metaphorically, of course), you can catch up, too. Forget that feeling of hopelessness and keep working at it. You’ll get there.

Don’t give up, nerdlings,

      Eeek, thank you so much, Nirvana! I’m actually going to skip the blog part of this award since I’ve done it already, but the thought really means a lot to me, so thank you for that πŸ™‚
