Congratulate yourself for coming this far. How does it feel to know you’re half-way through NaNoWriMo? Pat yourself on the back—you’re getting there!
As always the question of the day follows.
Have you neglected the rest of your life?
I get it. You’re busy writing a novel. This, however, does not mean you have the freedom to ignore every person, thing, and aspect in your life.
If you have a pressing obligation you’ve overlooked for the past fifteen days, maybe now’s the time to take care of it.
Since we’re half-way through, it’s also a great time to reconsider what is important to you right now. Writing is a no-brainer but what about exercising, reading, uh…sleeping?
Schedule some time in to sort out your priorities.
Slow down and take it easy for today, will ya?
Tomorrow’s question: do your characters drive your plot?
