Day 11: NaNoWriMo


When was the last time you smiled this month? With all the writing over here and outlining of there, we need to sit back and relax. Consider these next few minutes "You" time.

If you're feeling a little overwhelmed with things in your life, take a step back. In regards to writing there is a well analogy. The writer can keep drawing from the well, but eventually the well will run dry. There needs to be a period of time to let the water rise back to the top.

When we started at the beginning of this month, we all probably had a very full well. It was easy to pull the concepts and ideas. There was no back strain or calloused hands. It's probably time to just let the water come back on its own.

This is not an excuse to do nothing. It's advice to not push yourself past your limits for diminishing returns.
